Not a problem if you run the grabber and mythfilldatabase manually via
cron or similar. Generate your XMLTV data file(s) containing listings
for a subset of the channels on a videosource, and run
mythfilldatabase for each file, specifying the --sourceid and --update
flags. Each update should only update those channels specified in the
XMLTV data, leaving the other channels assigned to the videosource
You can only have 1 videosource assigned to a card input (via Input
Connections) but you can have multiple listings sources providing
source for a single videosource.
