I believe in the channel editor of mythtv-setup you can give channels 
priorities so it will pick one over the other.  Because these share a 
callsign, Myth currently treats them as pretty much identical.    If you 
can't find it in mythtv-setup, check your channel table in the database 
to see if there is a priority value you can change manually.
