I tried that, it doesn't seem to care - if the name is the same across zip
codes, SD treats them as the same source.

the HDHR only gets stations that broadcast in OTA HD like NBC etc, but it
also gets a few digital channels that aren't in the basic lineup. The HD-PVR
gets all the rest, including the important ones like Comedy Central, HD
Theater and Speed HD :-)

Heh, yeah, it's a great service and it's not like it costs much. The wiki
entry that was linked above looks like it can get the job done but if it's
an opportunity to pay back the folks that help me with Myth, I suppose it's
good all around/
