OOI, how do you get the channel numbering? I know how to get the numbers
for Freesat (and Freeview) and have written a scanner which can generate
numbered channels.conf files in VDR format.

Of more interest to me than Sky numbering is to get the regional
variations right in Freesat. There are some extra fields in its LCN
descriptors, but I don't know how to use them. I've had to hardwire
certain mappings by name (eg "BBC 1 South" = 101 etc), but all the
Channel 4 variants have the same name and my script has assigned 104 to
a Northern Irish variant judging by the adverts.
