That's dangerous in edge cases where a recording starts on another card
while you are editing the channel where the recording runs, but maybe
you are just poking around randomly. While this is a violation of the
basic "nothing changes until I hit OK" UI mantra, I guess that case is
so obscure that it pretty much never happens in reality. Of course,
you'd need to restore the old channel settings when the user hits
Another - maybe better - hack could be a temporary dummy channel record
where you write the currently edited data to and the preview player is
always tuned to that dummy channel. When you're done, you can delete
that channel record again.
