Exactly.  And, as for the Weather Channel listings showing up on USA, 
that's due to your having the Weather Channel's XMLTV ID on USA's 
channel.  Just go into the Channel Editor in mythtv-setup or MythWeb or 
mythfrontend and edit the XMLTV ID--making all of them on all of your 
channels line up with those on the Schedules Direct website.
