First, my chanids (set manually in SQL) start at 1 (4, actually, because 
I chose so to match my TV), so it's definitely possible. Only the 
automatically added ones start at 1000.

Second, I don't think it's a good idea to use the DB id (used to link 
tables together) for the presets (the stuff you key in the remote) - 
what, for example, if you change the presets? Does the program table 
then change as well? The chanid should be internal only and never shown 
to the user. Use another colum for the presets, as I suggested in my 
last post in this thread.
