Hi Mike,

Thanks for the reply.  I followed the instructions from the link that you
posted  below, but it didn't resolve the problem.  The Program listings show
all of the  channel information correctly, but it still shows all of the
channels as being one channel off in Upcoming Recordings, Recorded Programs,
and Recording Schedule.  Here's a recap of what I did:

stop backend
mythtv-setup -> video sources
delete all video sources
create new video source (I made it a different name)
enter information for schedule direct account
assign new video source to the two tuners
Click "Retrieve channel info from sources"

I know that the channel editor will let me change the channel Name and
callsign for each channel, but I would prefer to find an easier way to
complete that task  rather than manually modifying all 70+ channels.  I get
shivers down the back just thinking about it :)
