My final solution for this turned out to be much simpler. My main issue
was that the channel scan was not set up for two identical virtual
channels w/ different actual channels. So if I do an actual channel at a
time, make the virtual channels whatever I want and then change the
virtual channels in the db table after the fact everything seems to
work. No hacking required. But as others have pointed out, the channel
scanning and editing is just too hard. I would probably be helpful if I
lent a hand in improving that.
