Not a bad idea.  When Tivo shuffles the channel names, I end up silently
missing episodes of shows.  Not good...

See, with Myth I ended up doing "on any channel" recordings.  This way I
didn't have to set up multiple rules for Law & Order.  However, I had to
go through some serious pain eliminating episodes that I'd already
watched.  But once that was done, all was well.  And now it's
portable... ;)
