It does not work for video from scannable digital sources since there 
isn't enough information in the listings to tune digital channels.  (The 
only exceptions to the "analog only" rule being "unscannable" digital 
sources--i.e. Firewire and HDHR Prime (and only the Prime).)  Therefore, 
MythTV ignores a request to fetch channels from listings source for 
scannable digital channels so you don't end up with duplicate channels.
