I've had trouble in the past with VDR disagreeing with the format used
by the output of scan so I've written a script which compares VDR's
channels.conf with the output of scan with Freeview numbering and
outputs a new file with VDR's channel data but resorted and with the
Freeview numbering added.

It uses some file locations etc which are specific to Debian and my
local transmitter, but it can easily be altered by changing the
upper-case variables near the top of the script.
