Well, since apparently nobody out there uses firewire, I thought I'd add
a little bit to this issue. I was in mythtv-setup, and for the lineup
for the Firewire input, I told it to use the existing lineup I had in
SchedulesDirect, and told it "Fetch channels from listing source".
However, I still see the original channels that I had. 50 known
channels and 270 that say Unknown (i.e "UNKNOWN117#0, etc.).
Should I tweak my lineups in SD so that I have 1 lineup with the known
channels, and another one with everything that my STB gets so I can grab
listings to record via Firewire?
Thanks for any help,
