Yes, mythweb does not show duplicate channesl with the same call sign - 
In my case (and probably yours - since we both have wbz), for instance, 
I get the SciFi from directv (244?) and from comcast cable (some 2 digit 
number).  Mythweb will only show the one from the cable source, since 
they both have the same callsign - 'SciFi'.  I assume you can change the 
call signg - SciFiCB or SciFiDTV, and get them both to appear, but, it's 
not been *that* urgent of an issue for me.

In your case of of both ATSC and QAM for WBZ, I believe you can get 
around that by setting the the QAM input to a higher priority ...
