All my channel importing comes from Schedules Direct. I edit my channel list 
on their web site then select "import from listing provider" (or however 
that's phrased) in mythtv-setup.

*My* latest confusion is that I'm eventually going to have three different 
video sources all using different subsets of the same Schedules Direct lineup: 
my DTAs/PVR-500, my HDHomeruns carrying the OTA channels and an STB doing 

Schedules Direct points one here for this issue:

I'm going to simplify their instructions by keeping a master list of channels 
at SD, importing that into a new video source, then manually deleting the 
channels that don't apply to that source.

At least I *think* it's more simple.
