Unfortunately, I did this all by hand.  I had my laptop open, with several
Firefox tabs of the local PBS stations (Comcast in my area broadcasts two
PBS stations).  And those PBS stations each have 3 channels associated.  So
I just matched up what was what, then input the XML_TV_ID number from
Schedules Direct into my DB, and it started working.  It takes a little
time, but probably faster than mucking about with the SCTE65scan (at least
for me).
