Myth wouldn't care if you lied about the channel information.  As long 
as you chose an appropriate channel such that recording rules/duplicate

No.  You just need to import the show--the same as if you're fixing a 
broken database.

Which is probably good because of all of the questions of legality 
involved with doing this (especially in the US).
