Ah, then for instance it's OK if I change the MTV channel from
whatever the scan found (maybe 94#5 or something like that) to 43.5?
That way the PVR analog MTV is 43, the HDHR digital MTV is 43.5 and
they both show up in the Program Guide next to each other?
I then go to SchedulesDirect, fron the XLMTV ID number, place that in
the channel data using the editor and Myth then finds the right
program info? I guess the correct frequency and freqID are in the
database from the scan?
