That is the rub with the HDHR, you cannot even tell what channels you
are receiving as there is no mapping of qam transport channels to actual
channels. In fact you will have to manually figure out what each channel
is and then manually enter the data into the database and then will have
to look up what the xmltvid number is for that channel. I would strongly
recommend that you spend the time getting a firewire stb set up.
Although quirky its far far easier than setting up a hdhr. Here in
Florida the cable company (comcast) has a nasty habit of moving channels
around every few weeks which is completely transparent when using a stb
but will cause you large amounts of frustration when all of a sudden you
start recording garbage or nothing at all.
