Just realized, I should explain something here before a bunch of people
start modifying their lineups to create a single "grand unified lineup."
The "decoupling of the video source from the lineup" provided by
#3299--i.e. reusing the same lineup on multiple video sources--should
/only/ be used by those who can't find /any/ way to create separate
lineups that contain only the channels appropriate for a specific source.
#3299 does /not/ prevent MythTV from downloading the programming for a
lineup multiple times. If a user specifies 3 video sources all using
the same lineup, the programming information for that lineup will be
downloaded 3 times--once for each video source. Therefore, if a user
consolidates his/her lineups into a single lineup, not only will that
lineup be downloaded 3 times, but since that lineup now contains /all/
the user's channels, it will be larger than the separate lineups.
