Channel numbers are only used to specify which channel to watch during 
LiveTV, so you can change them to anything you want.  Channel ID's 
should never be edited by users (they are supposed to be internal to 
Myth, which is why the UI doesn't show them to you).  Listings data is 
associated with channels using the xmltvid.  See 
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Frontend_Channel_Editor and the 
XMLTVID link in the page.
