My process is to use the "scan" program from linux-dvb-utils. Next, I
have a perl script that will record 5 to 10 seconds from every channel
and determine the encryption status using ffmpeg. After that, I use
mplayer to determine what channel it is. Then I create a CSV file and
run one last perl script that goes into the database and configures the
channel names, numbers, XML ID, etc.
I can share some of this if you are interested.
