[mythtv-users] Setting up HDHomeRun Prime on 0.25

I have been trying to set up my HDHomeRun Prime tuner with cable card on 
my Mythbuntu system which is running the 0.25 branch and I'm having some 
issues and also have some questions.

First of all, I am following 
and the point where I start having issues is adding the channels from 
listing source.  I've configured the Comcast Digital line up for my area 
and I can select it when setting up the source but when I connect the 
input source connection and click on "Fetch channels from listing 
source" it just freezes for a few seconds and then returns without 
adding anything.

Additionally I am a little confused on how mythtv handles the prime 
tuner.  I am able to use the config_gui on my MacBook and tune channels 
in using VLC but, of course, the channels are listed by physical 
channels and then program streams so what I'm trying to figure out is 
exactly how mythtv handles these channels.  When I do a channel scan to 
add channels mythtv ends up adding channels such as 28-4 which won't 
line up with the channels I am getting from SchedulesDirect.  I'd 
appreciate it if someone could clear this up for me as I really haven't 
found much on the net explaining how these work.
