Do they also have duplicate callsigns?  If so, you're getting the 
desired behavior.  You've told Myth they're the same channel, so it 
doesn't show both and it can record--even a channel record--from 
either.  If you want to see both, you need to specify different 
callsigns, but if you do any channel record rules, it will only use the 
channel from the source specified.
