I was just verifying my understanding of what you have done so far.  It is
greatly appreciated.

As for channels in the database, that happens when you assign a video source
to a capture card in the input connections in mythtv-setup.  You have the
open to "Scan for channels" or "Fetch channels from listing source".

As Eric stated about Firewire, the "Fetch channels from listing source"
options fetches the lineup from Schedules Direct.
