That's good. For the scheduler to consider channels on different
sources equal, they must have the same CALLSIGN. For the EPG and
MythWeb to show a duplicated channel once, you must also give the
channels the same CHANNEL NUMBER. You may also want to specify a
priority for duplicated channels, so that the scheduler gives
preference to those channels on a certain source etc (For example, I
give preference to DVB channels over those also available on my cable
box due to the much higher quality recordings from DVB)

No. See http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/215794 for
