[mythtv-users] How do I prevent PVR tuner channel changes?

I am a linux newbie. I have no idea what I am doing other than copying and
pasting a bunch of code to different file names or something.
I have a STB (satellite receiver) connected via co-ax cable to my mythTV
system. It is up and running, almost. I thought I had a work-around to get
myth to tune my PVR-250 to channel 93 by typing the below command in a term
# ivtv-tune -c93 -d /dev/video0
I have to tune the PVR to a channel b/t 73 and 98 (long story) b/c of the
way my satellite receiver is set-up.
1. How do I make Linux FC-4 (really I am running Mythdora) tune to channel
93 (my channel of choice) permanently so that it survives a re-boot?
Currently, after booting up, mythfront end starts. I then alt-tab to
open a term window, "su" to root and type the above command. I then alt-tab
back to myth frontend and the system works.
2. How do I make myth NOT change the PVR channel when a show is programmed
Even though the PVR changes to channel 93 (Z) because of the above
command, it is only good for watching live Myth TV.
As soon as a program is scheduled to record on channel X, I think myth
is changing the tuner to channel X. I need the tuner to stay on channel Z
after a reboot, through new recordings, and forever.
3. I tried to set things up in Step 4 of mythtv set-up, but that did not
help. It is a mystery to me.
