The SiliconDust channel map for my area is correct and I was able to place
KCBSDT on 89.412 and KCET-HD on 88.401. So I created a dummy video source
as my channel scan scratch area and did a extracted transport frequency scan for
these exact frequencies. One at a time. After each scan I then move
the channel to my
actual video source and filled in or corrected the information. Then,
because they
come up w/ the same ATSC major and minor channel I went into the database and
changed the atsc_major_chan and atsc_minor_chan values for each channel to the
ones you see above.

My only issue now is that because it took me a few shots to get this
right I have the guide
data for KCET-HD associated to KCBSDT's actual channel. And I have no guide data
associated to KCET-HD's actual channel. I am convinced this is because
I had the wrong
channel info for KCBS 782 at the beginning. Does anyone know a fix?
