Yes, but not quite the same.

What I am after is an ordered channel list in the same order as the 
official decoders from different providers.  ie, someone from outside 
the UK wouldn't necessarily know that the channels go:

BBC 1, 2 , ITV 1, Ch 4, five.  Then BBC 3, 4 etc.

I know when I moved to Italy from the UK it took me about a year to work 
out that Rete 4, Canale 5 were followed by Italia 1..

The channel numbers for several providers are already in Lyngsat, with 
the channel frequencies and tsid's.. Why not extract the info and build 
an ordered channel list for vdr in the operator designated order?
