Hi Henning, 

First of all, thanks again for creating and continuing to offer such a
service as the channelpedia. 

Could you please tell us whether the channelpedia already provides an
interface that an application can use to retrieve the uniqueID if a is
passed to it? I can easily imagine plugins like the xmltv2vdr plugin
sending requests to the channelpedia to match epg and channels.
