Right.  I have three lineups defined; 1 for analog cable, 1 for
digital cable (the firewire), and 1 for OTA ATSC.

The reason I made a point of saying that the firewire was only for
channels above 100, was to point out that channel 8 could not be
recorded on the firewire input.  Yet, even though I told the scheduler
to prefer the firewire input, it was choosing to record ESPN on my
PVR-500 instead of ESPNHD via firewire.
