Services include the equivalent of many local television stations, broadcast television networks, subscription television services, satellite radio services, and private video services.Subscribers have access to hundreds of channels, so its competitors are cable television service and other satellite-based services.As always, whenever you're going to do anything that may be invasive to your Myth TV setup, make sure you backup your database.If your data source (zap2it/schedulesdirect) has already picked up the new lineup, the normal update script, mythfilldatabase, seems to do this job really well.Sometimes updating the schedulesdirect lineup doesn't clean up the old channel.

This can take a few hours, depending upon the amount of data stored on your receiver.
On the remote control, press and hold down the EXIT key until you see a confirmation that your receiver has been set for standard definition."

I was hoping you guys could reply with a way around this problem.
