It's a shame you actually have to delete the channel.  I could see the
value of an "enable scheduler" flag for channels... so we could simply tell
the scheduler to ignore a given channel on a scheduling run... however a
"record this showing" would still work, and you could still tune it in
livetv, and optionally record while you watch.

Would be handy to be able to exclude channels from searching too... I hate
running a "new series" search and seeing a ton of crap from channels I will
never record but may tune to occasionally (shopping, community access,
local government, etc).
