Thanks Eric; that's what I thought.  So this brings me right back to my
original question.  Is the channel scanner in mythtv-setup the best / only
way to go?

I currently have around 50 channels in mythtv for my hdhr source.
 Definitely lots of SD/HD dupes and some "junk" channels; 50 is just the
approximate raw number.  I have everything working to my satisfaction with
the HDHR.  The recent scan with the HDHR tools showed that there are maybe 4
or 5 new channels that I can tune.  Of these one I definitely would like to
get into Myth and another looks interesting, but I doubt I would ever record
anything from it.  The rest I could care less about.  I'm afraid of doing a
scan and messing up something with the 50 or so channels that I have working
just to try to get 1 or 2 channels added.

Thanks again,
