[vdr] UK Freeview Logical Channel Numbers

The point is that a £20 freeview box automatically sorts the channel list
using the broadcast lcn data without any user intervention. Then of course
all the channel numbering is correct and conforms to the UK freeview channel
order. By using Tony's script we get the same functionality in vdr for UK
Freeview channel numbering without having to manually resort the channel
list every time we rescan.

Your channel list below is not in UK Freeview LCN order of course.

Channel 4 and 5 have been free to air for ages on freeview, cable and Sky by
the way.

Cheers

Andrew
