Add "can decrypt" column to the Services tab
The page with the services in the webif of tvheadend already has a column to tell the user for each service, whether it is free or encrypted. What about adding an additional column to that page to tell the user, whether tvheadend is able to decrypt the service. This of course depends on the tvheadend setup that the user is using, but it might be useful to the user to have a way to determine what channels his setup can decrypt without having to manually zap through the channels.
This is also particularly useful for satellite user with lots of encrypted channels, that can only decrypt part of the offering of the provider depending on their subscription.
This decrypt information does not necessarily have to be located in a new column; the already existing free/encrypted column could be enhanced into a column with 3 values: free/decryptable/not decryptable.
Have a nice day.

I think this isn't possible.
You can only detect if a channel is possible to decipher if you open it.
Doing that for all the channels would take quite a while, especially on sattelite with 1000+ channels.
