The above all makes sense. Yet I guess there are times when you do want
to fetch data and have it override your local edits. Could there be an
option to add missing channels even if the channels are up to date, for
What if the network were to change its channel numbers (in the LCN
table)? That would only affect the NIT. I guess we wouldn't overwrite
the local channel numbers (in case those had been edited) but then
sometimes you might want to.
