That guide seems overly complicated to me.

When I added digital cable channels to my system, I created an  
additional DD lineup in my account, so I had one analog lineup and  
one digital.  I created a video source for each and tied them to the  
proper tuner inputs.  It works great.  MythTV even caches the data  
from one lineup and uses it to help fill in the other.  I didn't have  
to go back and forth deleting anything, and I didn't have to change  
the mythfilldatabase flags -- it all "just works."

I'm not sure why anyone would do the song-and-dance in the docs,  
unless maybe they'd bumped into the 4-lineup limit.  Am I missing
