But how many times does the channel appear in MythWeb listings?  If it's 
3x, then it's not what I was talking about.  If it appears only once, 
then it's likely what I was talking about (where, depending on which 
channel is shown, you may or may not be seeing the channel on which the 
show will be recorded).  However, if "channel" in your above table is 
the channel number, then it looks like it should appear 3 times in the 
listings (once for 5, once for 5_2, and once for 5_3).
