Not necessarily Dave, this should only go to Schedules Direct if
there's an actual listing problem.

Basically where I live over the air Fox is on channel 45.1 and if you
get it through clear QAM on comcast it also shows up as 45.1. But, on
the cable box it shows up on channel 213 and that's the channel number
that schedules direct lists as well. This Fox channel 213 is the same
channel as 45.1 and it's listings are the listings that should be used
for the 45.1 fox.

Not only that but the XMLTV Id's are both 21233 so the listings should
still automatically come in for the Fox that the channel scan picked
up as 45.1
