Duplicate Naming Broken when PSIP not present and channels misnamed

This was recently broken, I can not reproduce using a older build.

When scanning Comcast (QAM64, no PSIP information) -

The scan finds channels, but assigns them all the same name (the name of the first channel it finds). So for example, if it finds a Channel UNKNOWN13#1, it writes that to the database. Next it finds channel 83-3 but it calls that channel UNKNOWN13#1.

Two problems

  • Only one channel is in the channels at the end of the proccess, UNKNOWN13#1.
  • In situations where the PSIP can't be found, can we still name according to user preference? I asked Myth to store each channel with a "." seperator (so I wanted 13.1), instead it bailed and called it "UNKNOWN13#1"

I will attach log shortly.

(note, it's actually just channel, siparser and record not -v all). It's still huge.

Joshua, can you try the attached patch? It should add all the channels it finds instead of only the last one.

The reason for the "#" is to avoid conflicts when you rename the channels with proper names, so that won't change. In LiveTV hit "E" and it will bring up the frontend channel editor where you can rename the channel while watching it.
