One intermediate step towards a tighter integration between Mythtv and
xmltv would be that myth runs the grabber with --configure to let the
user select which channels to download data for. Then, mythtv runs the
grabber once with --days 1 and parses the output to find which
channels the user wants. It can then present these channels in the
dropdown for each channel and allow the user to map mythtv's channels
to xmltv's channels. This dropdown would only contain as many channels
as the user actually has. Note that the xmltv-file contains entries
for each channel that maps the xmltvid to a more friendly name, so the
user does not have to see the xmltvid.
