I pre-ordered a tri-tuner HDHR Prime and hope to receive it soon. I was
reading another thread today about scanning with the HDHR Classic and was
reminded of what a nightmare it is for me whenever I try to add my Classic
back into the tuner mix - It's a full afternoon of editing channel numbers,
XML IDs and channel IDs, only to have them be a mess 2 months later when
Charter decides to shuffle everything around.

I read some of the threads about the Primes and had a nightmarish thought -
What if I have to manually enter the information for all my cable channels?
It would take me a week and I'm sure I'd break it multiple times along the

I probably just missed this answer, but since the Prime has a CableCard, is
the logic built into the card to know which channel is which, and tell the
Myth channel scanner appropriately? Because if not, I may just cancel my
pre-order and stick with my HD-PVR. (I hope that's not the case!)
