I found a page that answered my questions here:

It takes some trial and error, but I got my channels successfuly
tuning now, and retrieving full data. Since I'm using the HDHR, I had
to scan using the tool from their website. That generates a long list
of info to parse, and I had to enter it manually with mysql command
line, but it worked.
