I think that's correct. But for channels coming through a cable box,
unless you've manually changed the channel number the station is
mapped to, they're going to be identical. It definitely needs it to
use freqid though, because if you've reassigned, say, channel 505 to
channel 5 in your frontend, what you need to send to the cable box to
get it to the intended channel is 505... But yeah, on my own setup,
for every channel coming through a cable box, channum == freqid.
