[mythtv-users] Changing channels across tuners

I have several tuners in my boxes, and all of them but 1 are for the
same source.  The tuners are all bt8x cards capturing analog cable
from comcast.  However, recently I've (finally) successfully been able
to install and configure a pcHDTV 3000 card.  It's working great, I
captured a few shows over the past couple of days in high def, and
they are sooo beautiful I am having a hard time going back to watching
the analog versions I have recorded.

The setup required 2 sources setup through zap2it to acomplish this. 
One is called comcast, the other is HDTV.  The comcast was setup
choosing cable, then comcast locally; the HDTV was setup through
choosing local broadcast stations, and then removing anything not "DT"
at the end.


The rare occasion I do watch LiveTV, I can switch channels no problem
using the arrow keys or even typing in the channel number.  But, if I
come across a HDTV channel, myth will just skip it as if it doesn't
exist.  BUT if I change tuners to the high def tuner first, I can then
flip through the high def stations BUT cannot tune the analog

I hope I've painted a clear idea of what the problem is, if not please
reply and I'll see if I can be any more clear.

If you understand what I'm saying, does anyone have any suggestions?
