I don't know of a way to have two schedules per tuner. Might be, but I
don't know it.
You are saying that "HD Broadcast" is your local OTA channels that are
sent via cable?
Then, there really is no difference capturing the signals. Perhaps you
are saying that the lineup (say, from SchedulesDirect) lists your
cable channels, but the local HD channels are not listed. They should
be listed, though.
Or, you may be asking how to obtain channels that are not on the list,
but you've found them doing a scan and would like to include them? If
so, there are a couple of ways to do this. There are quite a few
threads here about that. If you are using Comcast, you might search
for "scte65scan" a utility that scans for channels on Comcast cable
(might work for other cables too.) Another way is the brute force way.
You scan and find channels that are not listed. You can add the XMLID
to the channel by hand. There are threads about this as well.
First, maybe we could see if I hit any thing above of what you are
asking. If I missed it, can you rephrase and maybe I'll get it next
time around ;-)
