[mythtv-users] Adding channels for my HD-PVR

OK, so I upgraded to 0.22 on Mythbuntu 9.10 today and it went fairly
smoothly. I can capture from my HD-PVR using "cat /dev/video0 >
<filename>" so the kernel sees it. I added the HD-PVR as a tuner card,
but I'm a little unsure how to tie the channels from my cable box to
it. So, can anyone give me some pointers with the following:
1) I have a lot of my channels in my SchedulesDirect lineup that I can
only get from my cable box (originally I wanted to capture them over
Firewire). How do I get these channels into Myth? I may have had them
once but used the channel editor to remove them since I could never get
Firewire to work. Do I have to make a new Input connection for them?
2) When I added the HD-PVR, I put in "/usr/bin/6200ch" as the channel
change script. I realized that I don't have 6200ch. I know I can
compile it so that's not a problem. Is "/usr/bin/6200ch" enough to have
on that command line, or are there other parameters that I need to pass in?
Thanks for any help.
