I'm posting inline. It's a bit messy but there are several points

I tried the following.
Move ttyx(9,8,7) to tty(4,5,6) to coincide with the missing ones. No
Not sure if this was advisable but it didn't seem to break anything

I've done this in the past, but only once. I can't remember how, or
where I found the info last time.

Tried this, they get changed back to the settings shown by ls.

You've given me a clue here. "device nodes". I couldn't even remember that.
