Two of them have the same channel numbers as existing channels in my lineup (HD and SD of the same channel), but different callsigns. The other is a channel that doesn't show up in my lineup on the site, the official guide, or my cablecard channel lineup.
You'll be able to disable them Thursday. At that point I'll cut the SD website over to use SD-DD as the display data source. If you need to do it sooner, PM me and I'll provide instructions.

/getdata goes to TMS-DD
/getdata2 goes to SD-DD (feel free to open them in tabs and bounce back and forth!)

Today I reenabled it, and I have come to find out my channel 5 data have been getting "erased" (MythTV showing "(unknown)" in the EPG). There is another channel 5 now, WBBZDT3, ID 73159. For one, I didn't think it'd be possible to put more than one channel on 5; this is NTSC still (don't know for how much longer). For another, the "affiliate" tag says "Independent," but that's not really true, they're a MeTV affiliate. Looking at the EPG, it appears to have all the MeTV programs listed, but none of the locally originated content. I don't record any of the local content, so I don't know exactly what TWC is putting on that channel (I just watch the MeTV programs). Likewise, the lineup report says both WBBZDT3 and WKBW ( ID11600 ) are broadcast channel 7, which I don't think could be accurate either.
Check out /getdata and /getdata2 to see what the lineups say should be on the various channels.
It could also be legacy stuff in your TMS record (Tribune made the change, but old data got stuck in your lineup). That's why folks had to sometimes do the "re-add lineup" to fix things at TMS-DD. SD-DD only stores excluded channel information (not a complete lineup), so you always get Tribune's current lineup. If /getdata2 is wrong, open a lineup support ticket to have it fixed.
