Well it depends where you want it on your remote I guess but 10 would
make a logical choice. If you do make it don't don't forget to change
your "starting channel" in your input connections as well. (This looks
like its set at 3 at the moment, which is why it fails to find the
channel info it wants)

I think you can leave most fields as auto. The important ones are the
frequency, probably the bandwidth, and the audio,video pids.
