Channel number and names are irrelevant.  The channel callsign is used 
to tell Myth whether 2 channels are different.  If you want to be able 
to control which channel is used for recording, you need to give them 
different callsigns.  Note that in so doing, all of your "this channel" 
rules will apply only to "this channel."
