So, the question you're asking is what decides the browse order.

Are you getting a message in the logs like:

Your channel ordering method "channel number (numeric)"
will not work with channels like: <channum>
Consider switching to order by "database order"
or "channel number (alpha)" in the general
settings section of the frontend setup
Switched to <channelorder> order.
