That's just not possible as the problem with ITV HD is that it
(falsely) identifies itself as an MPEG-1 video stream, even though
it's H.264. They more or less lie about what the stream contents are.
As the codec of the channel is not something stored in the database,
there's no SQL statement that would allow you to get the channel
working. In short, the only way to make it work is applying the
patch, and the patches are all hacks (my own included). That's the
reason there hasn't been a "final" fix so far, there's just been no
elegant way to do it.
