What's wrong with identical channums? Why making them slightly different
(6, 6A, 6B, 6C...) and then forcing the user to try each one until they
find one that works (or until they run into a deadlock I have just
experienced). Shouldn't the computer know better (using the chanids)
which tuner is free and could be used?
