#6040 closed patch (fixed)

Freeview channel number fix

I've noticed recently that when I (re)scan the Freeview channels some of the channels that are added have channel numbers using the transport ID instead of the UK channel number.

I've traced the problem to the fact that the broadcaster is sending multiple NITs and SIScan::HandleNIT is clearing the previous channel number information when the second NIT is received. The fix is not to clear the map on each NIT.

I don't know how widespread the problem is or whether it's just on the Central Scotland network but I have seen something on the users list about this problem.
