and same result.  I was really hoping to avoid redoing the channel lineup
as I have already spent a lot of time editing chan nums, adding icons,
setting priorities etc.  Can you see anything wrong with these sql dumps:?

Channel Example:
chanid channum freqid sourceid callsign name icon finetune videofilters xmltvid
recpriority contrast brightness colour hue tvformat visible
outputfilters useonairguide
mplexid serviceid tmoffset atsc_major_chan atsc_minor_chan last_record
commmethod  8662 62 662 8 FOOD Food Network
/home/mitchell/.mythtv/channels/food_network_us.jp... 0
50747 0 32768 32768 32768 32768 Default 1
0 32767 0 0 662 0 2012-01-26 17:59:39
Also, on the HDHR tuner page I get:

19700101-00:00:31 CableCARD: message: Requested channel is not a
digital channel. Please select a different channel.

I guess at this point ill try and just make a new test lineup...
