Yes, I do have a cable card installed.  The only reason why I had those 
channels in there was because I was scanning instead of fetching.  Could 
this be why I was getting the error in mythbackend.log regarding an 
unknown tuner?

On that page it said that using the dummy was for 0.24-fixes but I'm 
using the 0.25 branch.  I'll give that process a shot though and see if 
it makes a difference.

So if I gather this correctly, just pushing the vchannel number to the 
HDHR-CC it automatically knows what QAM channel to go to?
