In my experience the schedules direct list is a superset of all the channels
you can receive.  I started with all of them enabled and then went through
the schedules direct website and disabled all the ones I can't find with
scte65scan.  In part I disabled those channels to speed up mythfilldatabase
but really that shouldn't matter too much.  I think you could just leave
them all enabled and you'd end up with "extra" listings in your DB.

A little confused by your question but I'd suggest starting with a comcast
"digital cable" lineup for your zip and tweaking if desired.

They should... but YMMV.  ;)
