Just for the fun of it, I tried to program those phantom on-demand channels
into myth. I had some trouble since they dont show up sequentially, and not
all at once. I managed to get a couple to come up in myth (didnt spend a ton
of time on it), but cycling through takes forever, because if the channel is
not available at the time, you get an error after a timeout, and then you
can continue. Otherwise, tuning is pretty quick. I love my HDHR, and dont
plan to ever part with it.
