I have always had `in house` code in mind. If someone would
write simple code to parse/import the vdr .conf files it's
acceptable, and even a extra feature. It should be really
simple to write also, since it's just a bounch of :::::::::'s
and newlines + the parameter wording. I might consider helping
with a rewrite of the parsers in DVBChannel and DB if someone
writes the logic for setup.
If this get's done, all someone have to do is scan before
running mythsetup (verifying that the card works at the
same time), and import the channel.conf. If someone already
has a 1000+ line channel.conf from vdr, they could just
import and be set :)
