Can do it natively on a channel by channel basis.

Yes with a couple of 'tweaks'. You need to record in TS mode, and
*not* wait for SEQ header. The way Myth deals with DVB has been
changed since the 'old days' where you could convince Myth to record
another video stream along with the radio audio by manipulating pids -
now you just get very small files instead that only contain the audio.
I record "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" this way.

Yes I think so. Any you don't want listed you can hide.
