[mythtv-users] Frustration: Time Warner Cable QAM channel lineup changes

Forgive me for whining...but I'd just like to know WHY the cablecos do
this stuff.  It's a PITA every time they do it.

Twice over the past 6-8 months, I've had HDHomeRun recordings from the
major network HD channels come up zero-byte.

Both times this has happened because Time Warner Cable in Los Angeles
decided to change the frequencies of almost all of the clear-QAM
channels...I've just spent several hours of my
badly-needed-for-other-tasks weekend going through and matching up xmltv
IDs, channel numbers and names, etc., again.

If they're going to add clear-QAM channels, why don't they just leave the
rest of them on their previous frequencies?
