[mythtv-users] UK DVB-S Channel Numbering

After another channel scan of 28.2E after the latest shuffle of channels i
find myself again in the position where i have multiple copies of some
channels (some don't seem to work, some are regional etc) and I have spenyy
hours yet again getting the channel numbers correct.
What do other UK users out there do? It would seem to me some king of sql
script to update the channel name and number (including call sign and
XMLTVID where required) is the best way to go.
Now I've seen http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/UK_Channel_Assignments and the
scripts there but they dont cover the entire range of FTA channels from
what i can see. What i was thinking is that after a full scan a script
could scrape the required SID and channel data from lyngsat or somewhere
and produce an update script that would rename and number the channels
based on this. I'm not suggesting this be implemented in Myth but a script
n the wiki would be great.
I e-mailed the lyngsat webmaster address a while ago but never got a reply.
I would consider trying to do this properly myself but my skills a just not
up to it. I'd obviously be prepared to test any script and would shout at
all if it trashed my channel listings as its basically trashed already IMO.
So, what do other UK DVB-S/S2 users use? As currently my recording
schedules are not working correctly. For instance if i set 'Eastenders' to
be recorded at any time on any channel for SWMBO then it tries to record
one copy of each of the BBC one channels despite the name and subtext
looking identical to me.
TIA for any advice
