A question related to this procedure:  if I'm using a previously established
channel lineup which works for STB-Firewire (which also tunes by virtual
channel number), do I still need to create a new separate line-up, using a
testing tuner and retrieving lineup-info from SchedulesDirect?  Or can I
re-purpose that lineup?  (In my case, I plan on replacing the STB with the
PRIME.)  My assumption is that that the channel fetch fills in the actual
virtual number for each channel.  If that's all it does and is required for
