#219 closed enhancement (fixed)

Use callsigns to provide default associations in guided channel setup.

It is a tediously manual process selecting which guide data should be associated with which channel. After walking my father through the process over the phone, I was thinking... there has to be a better way. Provide a default association based on the callsign (where a callsign is present in the mythtv channel info). I have been told elsewhere that callsigns are not standardised, but you could provide a list of options to match against. It doesnt have to get it perfect because I am only suggesting to provide a default which the user can override.

I am going to have a go at coding something up for this but would be interested if anyone had feedback on the idea.

Have a look at the levenstien algorithm. I'd implement your own so that another dependency is not required.

i live between melbourne and gippsland and receive both channels, using callsigns may be a benefit for users who receive channels from 2 regions as in the setup selecting either region discounts the others data.
