Installing Dual line-ups in UK

Hi Guys,... Hope my questions are not too dummy level,...

But my 1st question would be where do I find the 5 digit Channel Id correspondence table/list for FreeView and FreeSAT in the UK.... I can find many of them in the output of a command line run,.. but that's a little old hat,.. surely there is a list,... somewhere with all the regional channel variations.

Can some pls point me to where I can find this "correspondence table/list"..

Many thanks

Tx for responding,.. Yes I did try this page,.. many useful bit,... but no direct answers,..

However I have come up with a stop gap,.. or something...

two sql scripts which insert the 5 digit codes for my area,.. and I'm sure would fill many peoples wants on an initial data fill for the xmltv data,...

If you find and error,.. missing entry, or typo,.. just correct it and re-run at the command line as follows..

mysql -umythtv -pXYZ87687 --database mythconverg < FS-nameeditV2.txt

Not saying this is perfect but a fair start for populating the xmltv info for SD

However,.. I would still love to get my hands on a definitive list of xmltv refs -> 5digit codes
