I'm also in the Portland area.  Myth's scanner was unable to find any of 
the newly decrypted channels.  I used the method described at 
http://www.silicondust.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5953 .  I had to make a 
few tweaks to the python script (I believe I had to add 'where sourceid 
=' to some of the db queries).  In all I think it took me about four 
hours including verifying and editing all the channels.
