The easiest solution is to create 2 xmltv configurations, one for each
source containing only the channels available on that source, and run
I've also asked the same question ( a few days ago was the most recent
:) ) - having faced the same scenario over the past couple of years
using the uk_rt grabber - why doesn't MFDB only match channels which
exist on the target video source and update their listings, and ignore
other channel/listings information in the XML file?
