I'm pretty sure the Prime does either CableCard or QAM, not both at the 
same time.  Either way, with clear-QAM going away, you won't be using 
QAM anyway.

I think this should get sorted out correctly automatically using 
callsign/xmltv ids.  Note: When we went all digital+encryption here I 
had to use a new "digital rebuild" lineup in Schedules Direct to get my 
new channels, so you may want to log in and check what's available.
