[mythtv-users] HDhomerun - Channel setup howto?

I just got a HDhomerun the other day and am in the process of setting it up.
 Going to be using it to record the unencrypted channels off my cable
connection.  Currently using two PVR-250s to also record analog content -
but after watching a bit of HD content on my roku I've been spoiled so had
to get some more HD content!

I feel like I'm missing something in the setup.  Here's what I've done so

1. Scanned channels using HDhomerun windows utility.
2. Gone to schedulesdirect.org and added a new digital lineup with only
channels enabled that are sent in the clear.
3. Run mythtv-setup, added tuners, assigned to new digital lineup.
4. Ran channel scan.

Now this where I got a bit list - during the channel scan I just added all
channels that it said it found (found 3 different groups, IIRC).  Looking at
my channel list now I have all these strange channels - none of which match
up with the SD lineup.

Now, I kind of assume that just need to go through and edit the channel
lineup manually so it matches the SD lineup and then the proper schedule
will start showing up.  Then I can adjust channel priorities to my desire so
that HD content is preferred over SD content.

Seems like a bit of a PITA - and I only have a couple dozen channels to do.
 How can I help ensure I've got the right channels?
