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
RHCE (7,EL4), CCSE, SCNA, SCDME
