If by "internal scanner", you mean the channel scan within mythtv-setup,
that *is* how I added my channels. If that's not what you meant, what is
the "internal scanner"?

In case it matters, I did have some analog channels in there already, as
I have a working PVR-500 card in the system. So the channels database
was not completely blank when I ran the channel scan.

An experiment I have to try when I get home tonight is to change the
starting channel to some other one. The starting channel was also set as
a result of the channel scan, and I can't change the channel (as I
described), so I can't tune any other channels at this point.

I will do this also when I get home this evening.
