Yes, I'm aware that it "handles it".  :-)  I just don't feel
it's as nice as my ReplayTV.  My family (mainly my wife) finds
it confusing to have multiple channel 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, etc...
when looking at the program guide, especially when some of them
are showing the same thing and some aren't.  I just felt that
Replay's method of dealing with it was a little nicer.
