Indeed.  I haven't used live tv in ages, so if I was ever aware of the issue

The other option is to create different Schedule Direct lineups for each
source and block the channels that are not appropriate.  Most areas have
both cable and digital cable lineups.  Or sometimes you can choose listings
from a nearby town using the same provider if their channels match up
