I don't know about 0.25 (I'm using 0.21-fixes), but I use mythtvbackend
setup to rescan individual channels that have had changes. Use the scan
existing transport stream option and select the transport stream
(physical channel number) to rescan. I usually use the minimal updates,
otherwise, I have to reconfigure the channel icons too.
