[mythtv-users] HDHomeRun QAM Channel Setup: UNKNOWN119#1???? Help Please.

I'm trying to setup my QAM channels on my HDHomeRun.  The major HD  
networks are no problem because they have correct names but there are  
a BUNCH of channels of type UNKNOWN[chan-number]#[mulitplex-number].   
Example UNKNOWN119#1.  Most of these channels are public access,  
cspan, or home shopping but a handful are things like DiscoveryHD,  
and some 480i repeats of basic cable analog channels.

So,  how do I set these up?  I suspect the key to my issue is the  
XMLTV ID.  All channels of this type seem to have the same XMLTV ID.   
Mythtv thinks all of these channels are the Jewelery Shopping  
channel.  Do I need to fix the XMLTV ID and if so how?

FYI. I broke from the HDHomeRun setup QAM instruction set and used  
Zap2it Digital Cable as a source because OTA, I don't think, would  
have a prayer of finding guide data for channels like DiscoveryHD.
