How are you going to manage that for Virgin? AFAIK each different part of the 
old NTL/Telewest empire(s) had different lineups with different channel numbers 
for the programs. I know from letters I have had from Virgin that there is a 
push to consolidate the channel selections, and the channel numbering, but it 
hasn't happened yet. And, given the general level of inertia and incompetancy I 
get from them (hello US, we have them over here too!) I can't see much happening 
  for a while yet.
