Actually found a solution to it.  Went to my lineups and had to re-add
them-- Schedules Direct referred to it as a "rare software bug," but I
suppose now the solution will be in the archives for anyone else.
Unfortunately doing this resets all the many channels that I had
disabled at SD, but given how I'll get 76 new ones at the same time,
the work seems worth it.  :)
