[mythtv-users] EPG channel order question

I seem to be stuck in getting my channels ordered the way I want.  On my
first try of setting up Myth ( about 1 year ago) I had only 1 HD tuner.  I
added an analog tuner shortly after that and when I did, my channels were
organized in such a way that the analog channels (2-96) came first and the
HD ones (900's) came second.  I liked that because I could quickly scan and
see what was on in HD.  Since then, I've ran into various issues causing me
to start over a time or two with fresh installs.  Now, it seems no matter
what I do, the HD channels show up in the EPG right next to their SD
counterpart.  I have seen similar questions asked, and the answer is always
to adjust the channels in the channel editor.  Here's a list of what I've
tried and the results:

scan HD channels with channel separator [.] = channels next to each other in
live TV guide and on mythweb
scan HD channel separator [0] = channels next to each other in live TV, but
ordered with larger numbers later in mythweb, meaning my HD channels are now
3 digits and SD are only 2
manually change channel numbers in channel editor (in mythtv-setup) =
channels next to each other in live TV, but ordered appropriately in mythweb

To clarify this a little, when I set up the channel numbers so my HD
channels are 3 digits, my live TV guide will be ordered like this 2, 3, 903,
4, 5, 6, 906, 7....but in mythweb it goes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7...903, 906...

I would like to set this up to mirror the cable box setup, so that my analog
channels are 2-96 and my HD channels mirror that, except in the 900's.  Can
anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong?  I am using mythdora 4 upgraded
to 20.2 for SD.  Also, FWIW, I have been having this problem on my last few
installs of FC6 with Myth 20.0, and Mythdora 4 with Myth 20.1.  I can
provide more information if you would like, I'm still trying to learn linux
and myth at the same time, so any help is greatly appreciated.  I can even
delve into the database a bit if you can tell me which field to change.
