I don't know if you are still having this issue but I have just had the
same problem following a reinstall. The reason is that at least one of
your channels is not numerical.
All channels need to have a number to be able to sort numerically. If
any of the channel numbers have letters in, then Myth will resort to
sorting them by letter. This information is valid for 0.19 + fixes; I
haven't upgraded yet so I don't know if this has changed with 0.20.
