up to basic digital cable Copy Free and only the Premium and some of
second tier digital cable channels blocked.

Probably. But it would probably be easier to write a python or perl
script to take the channel lineup associated with a firewire connected
cable box to output the channels in a fashion that could be added to
the mythtv wiki easily.
