What I ended-up doing was figuring out which channels I would get with
the 3000, selecting only those in my DD digital lineup, setup the
input with that lineup, and do a channel scan.  Then, manually through
the database, mode DD channel entries with the scanned entries data
and remove the scanned entries.  Myth now knows how to tune these
channels, as well as get new schedule information.
