Terrific Larry... Thank you so much.  One more question - when I delete
and add cards, is it necessary to do a channel scan again?  I didn't
know, so when I deleted and added the cards, I did two scans (which
takes awhile!).  Then I had to go back and delete the one marginal
channel (It says 67% strength, but it is blocky and caused a major
slowdown here a few nights ago when it just disappeared.  It is one of 3
other PBS stations I get, so I don't need it).

Thanks again!  We are just about setup with a PC in the living room
(coming this week) to be a front end, and then we are cutting the cord! 
Very exciting.  $100 saved a month by doing that - the wife already has
our Disney World trip earmarked. :)
