[Solved] Clarification on total usable PWM channels

I am trying to maximize the number of unique 16-bit PWM outputs that I can use simultaneously on the SPC560P40L1CEFAR (64 pins).  I have gathered the following information from the specification, and some of it appears to be conflicting.

1 Flex PWM unit
8 complementary or independent channels
4 PWM submodules
PWMX pin can optionally output a third PWM signal from each submodule
I count 10 PWM output channels though:
    A0, A1 A2, B0, B1, B2, B3, X0, X1, X2;
    B2 and X2 are both only available on pin 52

Which output channels correspond to which submodules?  And which channels cannot produce unique PWM signals?

I also noticed a paradox on page 24 of the SPC560P (34L and 40L) specification.  On the same page it says:
    Channels not used for PWM generation can be used for input capture functions.
A few lines down it then says:
    Capture capability for PWMA, PWMB, and PWMX channels not supported

Does this mean I need to use timer pins for input capture instead of the PWM pins?
