I am unsure if the example I provided is your correct lineup, but you will
have to play around with each one to find your correct lineup.

Note, that in the provider listings, some have an X at the end which
represent digital.  the current url does not know how to do that.  I think
you might need an "-X" at the end of the providerid when in the url.  but
since I dont have digital cable, only analog, I dont have a reference to
verify correct listing.
