VDR can already do that. Before each numbered group add a line ":@1 ",
":@10 ", ":@20 " etc. Exclude the quites, but ISTR there was some
problem if I didn't include a trailing space. I use this to make my
channels numbered the same way as Freeview and Freesat, so I'd prefer it
if channels lines had an LCN field instead of putting the numbers on
separate lines.

I think you can also use a : followed by a string without @ to add
comments, which are shown in the EPG. So I'm surprised everyon'e saying
you can't have comments in  channels.conf.
