Did you create a new Video Source for the HDHR Prime's list of 
channels?  Did you either:

a) create a new lineup at Schedules Direct for the HDHR Prime's channel 
b) add the superset of channels that your HDHR Prime can tune to your 
existing Schedules Direct lineup and then specify --remove-new-channels 
on your mythfilldatabase options (so it doesn't try to add the 
non-ClearQAM channels to your original HDHR's Video Source)
