Sorry, didn't explain myself properly. I am using xmltv for TV listings,
but EIT for the DVB radio feeds.
Did another clean install yesterday and in the program
guide/mythweb,settings,channels the TV channels are duplicated, live TV
does not show duplicates. After a channel scan in mythtv setup the
channel editor showed correct, the duplication happened after exiting
mythtv setup and running mythfilldatabase --manual, as instructed.
So, what have I done to get myself in this mess and how do I sort it
Obviously I don't want to delete the wrong duplication in the channel
editor, how can I marry up the one the live TV is using to the channel
Just out of interest?! This is an example extract of my mythweb channels
