Mythweb does not let you filter by source, but it does let you sort by source by clicking on the column title. Not as good as
filtering, but better than nothing.

Also I would suggest scte65scan. On Comcast, this will give you Comcasts mapping between frequency ID & call sign for SD clear
QAM stations. It also gives you the mapping to the Comcast channel number which can be useful as Comcast sometimes has a
different idea of the call sign than Schedules Direct for some of the more obscure cable only stations.
