There is definitely a way of telling if a channel is audio only - for
example, Kaffeine uses a different icon for TV and radio stations. But until
there's something in Myth that definitely needs the data there's probably no
point in storing it.

For now I'm going with "if channum >= 700 and channum < 799"!
