They're tuneable channel numbers.  So, channum.  startchan is simply the 
starting position when it starts the TVRec object -- it can't be null.  It 
gets saved between runs/whenever you exit live tv, so it keeps it on the same 
channel you last were using.  tunechan is for silly people that are using 
their tuner input for a cable/satellite box.  If tunechan is non-null, it 
will be set on the tuner, and the external change command will be used to 
switch channels instead of the tuner.
