Looks promising, rereading configfile without restarting would be nice.
Also capability to sort group, like
sort group 'New FreeTV-Channels @ S13.0E' by provider, name

I've been using patch "source dependant new channel insertation" from Rotor-0.1.0 plugin .
Is that the greatest and latest of it ?
Small change there would also be nice, new created channels without pids are stuffed
into respective 'New FreeTV-Channels' group, it would be better if they were stuffed into some
temporary group first (New Pidless Channels) and after pids are found put into proper group.
