Thanks.  Regarding trying the channels with the HDHR config GUI, that's what
I meant when I said that I verified them with the hdhomerun utilities from
Silicon Dust.  Actually booted into Windows because I find the SD programs a
little easier to use there, ran a scan, and tuned/viewed the channels in

I'll do some searching around for the script you might be using; maybe
posted somewhere on the mailing list, although I didn't find it in my
initial searches.
