Are you trying to delete the encrypted channels so that they don't show up
all in MythTV, or so that they don't show up for the HDHomeRun device but do

show up for some other device? If the former, I find the easiest way to 
delete channels is from MythWeb. If you're running it, go to:


(Change "localhost" to your MythTV system's hostname, if appropriate.) You
then check the "delete" boxes to the left of each unwanted channel and 
click "Save."

If you're not running MythWeb, you can do the same from mythtv-setup. Go
the Channel Editor, select a channel you don't want, and press the "d" key. 
This will produce a dialog box asking for confirmation. You'll need to
this process for each channel.

If you want to keep the encrypted channels available for another tuner (say,

an NTSC tuner connected to a cable box), then I believe your best bet is to 
create multiple sources. In mythtv-setup, select the Video Sources option
create one source for the HDHomeRun (you might call it "unencrypted digital"

or something) and another for your cable box (or whatever; you might call 
it "cable box"). You can then assign those sources to the appropriate input 
devices using the Input Connections page and, if necessary, edit the
for each (as just described) in the Channel Editor or via MythWeb.
