Won't that remove all the channels with the same sourceid? I think that
would mess up all the referential integrity to the recorded* tables. I
already have a number of shows that display the chanid  (#1234) where
there should be a channum from a previous time that I did a channel
scan. I'd like to preserve the history that I have. Marking each
channel as not visible will take it out of the scheduler and out of my
list of viewable. I have already changed the xmltvgrabber to /bin/true
so that it will not try to refresh the program* tables.
