Creating a new lineup in zap2it should not be a problem. I currently have 2
tuners; 1 with basic cable, the other is digital cable. I need 2 lineups
because there are different channels available to each tuner. I don't see
any duplication in the guide or elsewhere. I too get crappy reception on a
few low numbers channels (2 and 4). The solution you suggest is a good idea,
however, it is not really prioritizing the tuners, but instead excluding
certain channels from one tuner. I might give this idea a try and see how it
