That's a fair point, and a feature I agree would be useful, but that's
not how MythTV works now from a tuning perspective. Until then, I
prefer giving different channel numbers (I have long used +1000 to
over-the-air) to identical channels on different sources as a way of
a) quickly distinguishing which source a channel is on, and b) be able
to jump to a specific channel on a specific soure if I should so
