Well, a quick email to the we_can_help address, and a few hours later, they
got back w/ me and sent an init code. I asked if it was going to be a Grand
Slam init, and he mumbled "yeah". I don't think he really knew, but so far,
the fast majority of my channels have flipped to copy-free.

The LOVE, MYST, DRAMA, IPLEX, RPLEX (and a few other) channels are still
one-copy, but it appears they ought to be.

It turns out that I didn't need to have a list of what should be open, as
Comcast has nearly everything 'copy free' in my area (so far.. knock on

Thanks again for the help.
