Well, if you *never* want to watch the channel, you can remove it from
the channel DB directly (MySQL), or from upstream (zap2it) in my case.

If you just don't want a show to record on a certain channel, then you'll
have to change your show's recording schedule to reflect that. For example,
if you currently use "record at any time on any channel", change that to
"record at any time on this channel", and add multiple recording schedules
for that show for the channels you DO want it to record.

There is no "don't record this show on this channel" blacklist feature,
