hi, there is a feature that I am really missing: a "scan all channels for a country" feature. I mean, what you do with set-top DVB boxes or newer DVB TVs.

In last few days a lot of new muxes started broadcasting, so today my TV lists ~100 channels; whereas 'dvbstreamer' lists just very few. I would like a feature "scanall italy" that would use a standard list of channels for my country, and would look for any new program.

To do the above, I use a combination of 'scan' (available e.g. in the Debian package 'dvb-apps') and then 'setupdvbstreamer' , but it is quite inconvenient. I use
$ cat /usr/share/dvb/dvb-t/it-* | sort -u | sed '/^#/d;s/ */ /g' | uniq -u > /tmp/it-all
to aggregate all channels; and I edit that file to manually add the channels that my TV found; then
$ scan /tmp/it-all > scan.out 2> scan.err
and eventually
$ setupdvbstreamer -t scan.out

a.
