For non-US users, note that these restrictions do not always apply.
For the uk_rt XMLTV grabber, channels carrying the same station on
different video sources can share the same XMLTV ID, and stations (for
example BBC ONE, ITV1) can exist on more than one video source. As I
understand and have things configured, all channels available on a
given video source (analogue/DVB/cable/satellite) should be configured
to give the scheduler the most flexibility when scheduling recordings
across multiple input sources.
