You could change the line to  a lable by starting it with ": ". If I 
understand it correctly, using a space after : instead of @ and it 
becomes a label for the channels after. A way to group them sort of. You 
can then using it as a quick jump to the channel that follows, but it 
should be skiped when just surfing and it shouldn't try to save EPG data 
for it.
