And that works to a point. I have been trying to pad using the sat number
for example 790000, 970000, 1130000, etc. But this makes the numbers a bit
long. The problem here is that some providers like to sprawl with there
numbers using 4 and sometimes even 5 digits. The 5 digit channel problem is
minor though as those seem to tend to be data channels with nothing on them.
