I don't understand what would be easy in using SQL. Since the
channels.conf-code is already there,
and pretty stable, then obviously rewriting that to SQL is not "easy",
but instead additional work.
Justifying additional work needs some reason.
I think adding dependencies to outside packages is a burden that should
be avoided. There are
already many things I need to install separately in order the vdr box to
work; kernel, graphics
drivers, and xine-lib. Luckily, lirc is now already part of the kernel,
and DVB drivers, too; much
less hassle than before. This is the right direction to go - not adding
more moving parts that need
to be installed (with compatible versions).
