Could be, but I'm not playing with the freqid or serviceid values, to be
honest.  I'm just making sure that the freqid and serviceid have the proper
callsign in place.  When you have 6 subchannels and all you have to go on is
freqid, it's not easy to edit the callsigns and get everything right.
Adding just serviceid to the mix helped me match the various subchannels to
the proper callsign when I was manually editing my channels last night.  I
was using a mix of SchedulesDirect, Mythweb and HDHomeRun_GUI's output to
get everything lined up properly.

Adding the serviceid to Mythweb is adding one or two lines to about 3 files,
so I'll submit the patch on HEAD and see if it's accepted.
