If that's what's happening, of course I'm screwed. It will be easier and
cheaper to just give in and rent one of their boxes. If I can't get it
THEN, it will clearly be their fault. I don't really need to record the
CSPAN channels, just live TV access is required.

I haven't seen any way to check it using hdhomerun_config_gui . The channel
numbers do not correspond to Comcast channel numbers in the lineup; they
stop at channel 158, and they're called "physical channel numbers" and I
don't know any way to figure out where a given cable channel would be found.
