Thanks.  Using -p and a tuning file I see info for the HD channels.  Example:

mplexid FROM dtv_multiplex WHERE frequency=123000000);

I think as you say I need to edit the channum and callsign to match
the Schedule's Direct listing otherwise there will be problems.  I
believe if the callsign doesn't match there will be multiple entries
in the guide since my HD-PVR is using the channel/callsign from SD.
