If it were just one-time, no problem, but FTA channels are not static.
Changes happen often.
Perhaps a hidden sub-fix to the channun that would make it unique if the
scanner sees a dupe would work. It could start at 00 and increase one
with each dupe channel.
first channel stored as: 100 displayed as: 1
second stored as: 101 1
You could then be able to scroll thru all channels without editing the
numbers first and could prefix the channels later.
Sounds like something for .21
