[13136] prevents seeing channels with duplicate callsigns

Since [13136], I've been unable to browse listings for channels with duplicate callsigns, even though they have different programming. For example, I could see what PPV showings were on my cable box, now I only see the first PPV listing.

MythTV treats channels with the same callsign as identical. If they have different content, you need to give them different callsigns.

In what context? I can see all channels with duplicate callsigns in the program guide.

Just for the record, the program guide groups channels with the same callsign iff they have the same channel number. Take for example WABC-DT, it is listed as 7-1 from OTA and 1071 from CATV. The reason the channel is listed under both channel number in the program guide is only so that if you remember that the channel number is 1071 or 7-1 you will find it where you expect it in the ordered list. As far as MythTV is concerned they are the same channel, if you set up a manual recording on 1071 it is just as likely that it will be recorded on 7-1 as 1071.
