Hum...  SchedulesDirect has a broadcast selection that is very close
to the new digital.  Except the channels are different, and fewer off
them.  Would there be a way I could hookup schedulesDirect but kinda
alias the channels to something else?

SchedulesDirect thinks 75 = TCM and 70 = SYFY But I have them as 51_15
= TCM and 54_21 = SYFY.
