Sounds like good work, Morgan. I thought about being able to enter
channel numbers in the guide, and briefly started to work on it, but
didn't get very far and I haven't had much free time.
Currently, when in the guide, pressing 4 toggles between a listing of
all channels and and only favorites. Pressing 6 will bring up the
program finder. While in the finder, pressing 4 will bring you back to
the guide. Obviously, these bindings would have to be changed in order
to get channel number input working.
The way which seems to make the most sense (and a few other people have
agreed with me on this) is to use m to cycle between the 3 previously
mentioned views (guide-all, guide-favorites, and finder). If there are
no favorites, then pressing m while in the guide would bring you
straight to the finder.
Just some ideas if you decide to work on that...
