That's for taking a connection from a cable box over coax
where the box sends its output over channel 3 or 4. Most
older VCRs used coax outputs this way but most modern cable
boxes should have s-video or composite where there is no
such need to specify a channel.

Yes. it now stores the last channel in that field in the
database so you just need to set any vaild channel in the
initial setup which is only used the first time.
