Or more specifically, where do you think you see "41" as being
ambiguous? If you choose to record CBS Evening News, it's not
going to record Aaron Brown by mistake. Even in Manual Record
the combobox will show the long station name to indicate which
station (thus source/input). Internally, there are two different
rows for chanids 1041 (source 1, callsign "CNN") and  2041
(source 2, callsign "KUTV-DT").

Under Setup->TV Settings->General make sure your "Channel format"
is the default "number callsign" so you can see the callsigns in
the EPG and all the lists.
