I wrote a program that will figure out what channum is 84#2, etc.
I surmise from the subject that since are in the SF Bay Area, you live
in an area where Comcast is rolling out DTA's (Pace DC50X,
Motorola, Thomson, etc) and they send the virtual channel map in-band
now. I wrote a program that will download that virtual channel map.
Furthermore, you can tweak the output of my program to set the
channel's freqid to the virtual channel from the map. I
believe mythfilldatabase can match channels based on freqid,
so that means you don't need to mess with xmltvid any more.
