channel listings with 3 same channels

Why do some channels have 3 channels listed in the guide?
I understand there is usually a lower channel number for SD and an equivalent high channel number for HD, but sometimes there is an intermediate channel number as well. In the examples below, all of them have the same programming. There are more examples, but I just listed 3.

AMC channels 63, 550 & 1652
Animal planet channels 36, 254 & 1622
CNN channels 46, 311 & 1630


I'm trying to (painfully) go through my channel list and remove duplicate channels and only leave HD channels when SD channels exist. Looks like when I'm finished I won't be getting the 200+ channels that Time Warner Austin says I get for my monthly sub.

Also, I've very concerned that after I go through all of this trouble that any glitch or software reset might erase all of my efforts. It would be so nice if one could backup this type of stuff with the ability to restore it in such a situation.

Quick tip. You can remove channels directly from the grid guide. Arrow Left to highlight the channel, hit Select, and then choose to remove channel.

Also, using the one of the colored buttons while in grid guide (can't remember which one) will sort the list alphabetically, effectively listing each of the 3 versions together so you can quickly see duplicates as well as which ones have an HD equivalent.

As for why there are 3, that's Time Warner for you. Under 100 is the old Analog station people are used to (but with a CableCard, it re-maps to the digital version anyways), the low hundreds is the SD digital version, and the 1000's is the HD version. At least with my TWC, they standardized things with Digital and HD. Channel 101 SD is channel 1101 HD.

Ahhh, didn't know about tip #2, that might help my cause.
