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

I got the Lineup stuff worked out, so thanks for that tip.  As for the
channel changing, I was able to get the 6200ch application to compile and I
can run it from the command line to change the channel on my STB.  What do I
need to add to the HD-PVR card in mythtv-setup?  Also, my system doesn't
seem to have mythchanger, so would you have any more info on what it is or
where I get it?
