I guess you're referring to the 62500 Hz resolution of the
I know about that. But the channels themselves won't match.
SF 1 is on 175.60 MHz.
Since I'm using the europe-east tables (== europe-west plus
additional frequencies), I have to specify channel "E5" in
the freqid field in the "channels" table plus a finetune
value of 5 or 6.
I'd prefer if I could use a freqid of "K05" (as specified on
the Cablecom site) and then only slightly finetune that value.
That would allow us to write a small Perl script for Switzerland
- takes you ZIP (PLZ)
- grabs the channel table from the Cablecom site
- calculates the finetune value
- generates SQL output
Combine that with the alternative German XMLtv grabber, which
retrieves data from the TV.movie site, and we would have a complete
setup for Switzerland, which could work for all users, which are
Cablecom customers (most people in Switzerland, I guess).
What do you think?
