[mythtv-users] Cable channels missing

I seem to be missing a few cable channels when watching TV through my MythTV
box.  Channels 74, 79, 80, and 81 (us-cable) come through fine when I'm
watching TV through my digital cable box, but they're just static on my
Hauppauge PVR-150.  These four are the only channels I have in the lineup
between 72 and 96.

The only reference to this that I've been able to find on the mailing list
and online is a vague reference to a recent U.S. law that changed this part
of the frequency mapping so that it's no longer cable channels.  Has anyone
heard of such a law?  If it's true, why does my cable box show these
channels (my provider is Charter)?  Has anyone had a similar experience?

I just got my box up and running recently, so I don't know for sure when
this change may have occurred, but Charter did change their channel lineup a
couple months ago.  Probably related...

Any input would be appreciated.
