I tried this, and my pvr-350 video source now think it should be able
to record on the HD channels.  Not a huge deal this week, as my
recording schedules are still having only firewire capture hd, but the
new listings that were picked up after doing this and doing
mythfilldatabase are showing that the pvr-350 will try to record HD
programming next week.

How can I manually edit these out of my pvr-350 channels?  A simple
edit through mysql or some other way?

I can restore my db from earlier if that will help, but I think I will
just then rinse, lather, repeat myself into the same issue again.
