    MythTV Channel scanner

    MythTV Channel scanner

    myth_scanner - a replacement for MythTV's built-in scanner
    ================================================== ========
    What is it?

    myth_scanner is a perl script which uses the MythTV.pm module
    and dvbsnoop command to gather changes in transport/channel
    information for any DVB providor supporting proper SDT/NIT
    tables. These include (but are not limited to):

    Dish Network
    Bell ExpressVu

    NOTE: When used for GlobeCast, the -ignore_eit option is

    Directories in this package:

    patches/ - Contains some patches which can be used with the scanner.
    utilities/ - Some utilities I threw together which depend on SI-Parser.





    - Update channel names along with their callsigns. I don't know how this was
    missed in the first version, but here ya go.

    We help you acquire the perfect domain for your site. Affordable payment options. Quick and responsive customer support available.


    - Fixed a problem with SI::Parse::huffmanToString() which prevented
    it from decompressing PID 0x300.
    - Added auto commfree flagging option. This set commflag to 1 for any
    event which has tiers associated with it.
    - Added COMFREE section. Any callsign matching expressions within this
    section get commfree set to 1.
    - Added a more restrictive option to -filter_tiers. Use a value of 1
    for the old hehavior, or 2 for a more restrictive filtering. A value
    of 2 filters out all non-subscribed channels with the exception of
    PPV channels. Use a value of 3 for ALL non-subscrived channels.
    - Assume if tier byte 6 is 0xff, the channel is automatically subscribed.
