You can't write code that adds information that's missing from the
stream your cable company is providing. If the cable co doesn't give us
a good channel name, there's /no/ possible way Myth can automatically
link that channel to a Schedules Direct channel ID (which is what you're
putting into the xmltvid field when you set up QAM channels).
So, at least you don't have to feel guilty about not adding a helping
hand. Instead, you just need to make sure you place the blame squarely
on your cable co's shoulders, not Myth's.
