I went through the process you did, figuring out what each channel was. 
Then in the Channel Editor, I set them to the channel to which they are 
assigned in my cable listings. For example, I assigned channel 5.1 
WRAL-HD to channel 255, which is where Time-Warner digital has it 
listed. Then I could use MythTV's program guide to schedule recordings 
for it.
