[mythtv-users] Need help with meaning of channel table fields

Would this also be true in my case, where I'm using one tuner card (pcHDTV
5500) which has both analog and digital tuners and an s-video input?

I right now have only one lineup, and am having problems getting the
analog tuner to record....maybe this is the reason?

I also will eventually be using the s-video input for all the encrypted
channels, once I figure out how to route the audio from my STB through the
card into my sound card (it has an audio input which doesn't seem to be
working ATM).

So, I'll need three separate lineups, I assume?  There will be some
overlap - I have many of the SD channels on the digital side, which look a
lot cleaner than when I watch them on the analog side.  So, my guess is,
I'll have to delete the channels in the analog lineup which I prefer to
record from the QAM tuner....?
