    Please add the possibility to select the "Network ID" when using the "search for transponder list" option with DVB-C scanning (and possibly other DVB stream types).

    My cable provider (upc Cablecom Switzerland) has a transponder with NIT information but has multiple Network-IDs in the stream. MediaPortal selects a Network-ID which might not be the correct one. In my case the scan was giving 24 transponders, but using DVBLink and selecting the correct Network-ID gives 52 transponders. DVBLink does a prescan to find all Network IDs and then you select the correct one for your area.



    The "search for transponder list" feature is kind of broken without Network ID selection as the result might not be what is expected.
