There's no mapping to maintain, really.  The HDHR Prime tunes by
virtual channel number-- so the frequency, modulation, frequency
table, etc. is never even used by the application-- MythTV tunes the
virtual channel number, the Prime handles it all behind the scenes,
and streams data.  It's the Prime's job to maintain "what lives
where," the application needs only know the virtual channel... which
it gets from schedules direct, along with the XMLTVid, automatically.

No more mapping.
