Well, sort of.  If you have both a clear QAM tuner and a cable card
tuner, you currently still need to maintain the mappings to get the
clear qam tuner to work.  There's not yet any automated way to use the
mapping table from inside an HDHR Prime to tune a standard HDHR.

I've looked into scripting this, but it really feels like a hack.
Ideally, I'd like to use the same video source for both my Prime and
non-Prime HDHRs, but that's a lot of work.
