Tim, someone mentioned earlier that the HDHR support was not in the PPA 
version yet.  The reason mine worked is I'm using the External Recorder 
Blackbox version called mythhdhrrecorder. 

I also used some instructions from Gary about setup using 
mythhdhrrecorder and tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite, where he talks about his 
configuration for HDHomerun Premium service.  I used those instructions 
minus the part about setting up Premium Schedule Listings.

Link to PDF instructions.
