Of course. The 'channum' field is what determines what you need to
press on the remote/keyboard to select a channel. You need to change
yours to whatever channel numbers you want to use. (Be Warned: this
may affect your existing recording rules though).

You should be able to do this in the channel editor (or you can do it
by editing the database directly)..
