[mythtv-users] After FE_HAS_LOCK, what next?

After installing an HD-3000 card,
all of the dvb-apps package, and
the firmware, the azap program
showed that the card is working
with several channels having strong
signals.  FE_HAS_LOCK shows up
along with high signal values, error rates
of all zeros.

What are the next steps to getting
mythtv to tune and record ?

Using the Guide (EPG) to record from
the HD-3000 results in just snow.  So, 
I looked in mythtv-setup's Channel Editor
and found that the "Default" was set for all
channels, "Default" being NTSC.  Does that
mean going thru the Channel Editor and changing
all the HDTV channels to ATSC?

Since the system has a working PVR-350, I'd
guess that only the channels numbered like
2_1, 9_1, 9_2, etc., have to be changed to ATSC.

What other steps have to be done before mythtv
will recognize and record from the HD-3000 card ?

Thanks for any insight you might have
