Much improved on [10406] but I still have an issue!

On the guide, I'm missing channels that have duplicate names on two sources.

I have 6 terrestrial channels (standard VHF/UHF PAL) which also appear on
my sat box. They are configured with the same name but unique channel
numbers (the terrestrial ones are prefixed by '99'). The sat channel
numbers that correspond to the terrestrial channels are missing. I've yet
to check if I can still select them or browse them in LiveTV mode (vnc
fails in LiveTV mode!!). Do I now require unique channel names?
