BUT, myth still logged it to the database that the channel changed meaning the next time i started livetv it would go to the next channel that may or may not work.  

Ugh, this is what I was hoping to avoid, because I see the same problem:
it tries to tune the same bad channel again and crashes again.

But based on the responses so far, there is no other way. I thought I
must be doing something wrong, but I guess I need to set aside a two
hour or so block of time over the holiday weekend to get through this.

Next: getting OTA to work on the other HDHR tuner. In my area at least,
it appears that almost no HD channels are available with unencrypted
QAM. All I found using my TV's tuner were the local NBC and PBS
affiliates, everything else available is SD. Very disappointing, but
obviously not the fault of Myth or the HDHR. But that's why I have to go
to OTA next.
