BBC FOUR HD
QVC Beauty HD

Are not labelled correctly as AVC HD; this means that Channels app missing these two channels in their HD line-up. Can this be fixed.

Are you able to view any live TV on those channels? According to the diagnostics from your HDHomeRun, it says "no video" during the channel scan for those channels.

Both channels are only broadcast for part of the day, sharing bandwidth with other channels (CBeebies HD and QVC HD, respectively). The channel scan can only determine the channel information if it's on-air at the time you scan, so if you scan between 19:00 and 03:something you'll get BBC Four data, and from then until 19:00 CBeebies. The QVCs switch back and forth at 00:00 and 12:00.
