Hi Jim,

this helps a lot.

I can do this for the top 200 package for example, but I then still need 
to figure out what channels are in the HD package and the HBO packages.

I just don't think dish makes this very easy for their subscribers ( 
using myth ).

Thanks for the input.  It looks like it just has to be a very manual 
method the first time.
