Hi, i build a new mythtv system in a other house, how can i copy my channel list (found with xmltv) in this system? saving a lot of time??

I think all of that data is stored in the SQL backend. So theoretically you could copy the data by exporting/importing through a SQL tool. But it's not for the faint of heart and I wouldn't recommend it. Is there no Internet access on the new PC?

The "normal" channhel data is stored in the "channel" table (For analog and digital channels) and for digital channels there are extra tables "dtv_multiplex" and "dtv_privatetypes" whichhold the multiplex data.
I would recommend setting up a new myth system normally rather than trying to copy bits together.

Yes you can copy the chanels, I just don't recommend it.
If you really want to copy the channel data just use mysqldump to export the data to a file then import it with mysqladmin
You need to export/import the followig tables "channel","dtv_multiplex" and "dtv_privatetypes"
Don't blame me if it brakes.
