[mythtv-users] Channel confusion - 'Record on this channel' fails

I have 2 different PBS stations available. One is about 40 miles away
and one is local. The remote one is at 7_1 and the local is at 28_1.
The problem is that if I select 'Record on this channel', myth *always*
picks the first one, which, being far away, is subject to dropout. Even
if I select the program on 28_1 and tell myth to 'Record on this channel
only' it will record on 7_1 and show the show on 28_1 as 'This showing
will be recorded at an earlier time'.
The result is that many of the PBS shows are unwatchable because of the
dropout. I keep 7_* in the lineup because a) recordings work at night
and b) some shows come on one station and not the other.
In my view, this is a bug but perhaps it's a feature to some... Any
ideas on how to work around it?
