Thanks Eric; that's what I thought. So this brings me right back to my
original question. Is the channel scanner in mythtv-setup the best / only
way to go?
I currently have around 50 channels in mythtv for my hdhr source.
Definitely lots of SD/HD dupes and some "junk" channels; 50 is just the
approximate raw number. I have everything working to my satisfaction with
the HDHR. The recent scan with the HDHR tools showed that there are maybe 4
or 5 new channels that I can tune. Of these one I definitely would like to
get into Myth and another looks interesting, but I doubt I would ever record
anything from it. The rest I could care less about. I'm afraid of doing a
scan and messing up something with the 50 or so channels that I have working
just to try to get 1 or 2 channels added.
