[mythtv-users] How to deal with moving QAM channels?

Last night I had two PBS shows set to record on my HDHR. This morning
I noticed the file was missing for these recordings. Looking in the
log I saw the "Program #13 not found in PAT!". Took me awhile but I
realized the channel had changed locations. I verified this by
checking the TV and saw that channel was no longer listed. I think
Comcast moved it to space opened by removing analog channels a few
months ago... so others might see this.
Anyway I ran:
hdhomerun_config ffffffff scan 0
Found the new frequency... went into the channel editor and created a
new transport. Didn't see how to associate the mplexid to the channel
in the editor so I edited the
channel table. Seems to be working ok now.
So I'd really like to know when a channel is moved as soon as possible
so I can fix it. Does anyone have an automated way of checking this?
Something that can be run once a day in a cron job? I think I got
lucky this time and only lost 2 recordings but next time I might not
be so lucky...
