Just to be clear, you followed the setup process for the HDHR Prime
instructions, not the instructions for the regular HDHR.  In
particular, you did not perform a channel scan, instead choosing to
"Fetch channels from listing source".  Is that correct?

You may find more detailed error message in log files under /var/log/mythtv/

When you scanned using hdhr_config, what did it print for auth= for
these channels that have problems?
