Ok, I am confused again ;)
I just ran mythfilldatabase, and it grabbed the channel listings for
HDTV according to zap2it. The channels are in the form of (for
example) 4_1 for KTVXDT, but when I do a channel scan in mythtv in the
channel editor in mythtv-setup it finds KTVX-HD 41. So it seems it's
just removing the _ (seems to hold true for the channels I've looked
So which one do I use? How should I set this up?
This is the pchdtv 3000 if that matters. I'm using DVB drivers, not atsc.
