[mythtv-users] multiple sources with overlapping channels

I have two video inputs -- one PVR150 taking the input from a cable
STB, and a DVB-C card picking up the FTA channels. How should I
configure these to avoid duplicate channels and have the program guide
understand which channel I'm on correctly?

Currently I have a uk_rt source which has all the channels and I have
been using with the PVR150. To set up the DVB-C card I originally
configured it with EIT data.

Should the two inputs use the same video source (i.e. the XMLTV one)
for the backend to realise that the two channels are the same?
Currently I have:

4747  	102  	NULL  	4  	BBC Two  	BBC Two  	none  	NULL  	   	   	0
	32768  	32768  	32768  	32768  	Default  	0  	1  	   	1  	28  	2502
	NULL  	0  	0  	0
102  	102  	102  	3  	BBC Two  	BBC Two
	/home/mythtv/.mythtv/icons/tv/bbc2.gif  	NULL  	
	west.bbc2.bbc.co.uk  	0  	32768  	32768  	32768  	32768  	Default  	0
 	1  	   	0  	NULL  	0  	NULL  	0  	0  	0

for an example two versions of a channel in the database. When I watch
this channel on the DVB-C card and then go into the EPG again, it
comes up on the first channel (100) rather than 102 that I am
currently watching. What kind of misconfiguration is this?
