Beware, though, that there are providers that don't advertise channels
in the sdt even if the channels are currently broadcasting.
In the actuator plugin I have an option to prefix a '+' to all channels
in the current satellite, then you start a channel scan which will
update all active channels (i.e removing the '+').
At the end of the scan you can tell it to delete all channels marked
It's clumsier but it's safer, since you can revise the channels that are
going to be deleted before actually deleting them.
Of course all of this wouldn't be necessary if all broadcasters
respected the standards....
