I agree with you, but I couldnšt implement it (Išm still learning Myth and
haven't got into the code yet next step: MythVideo).
I needed to do this to test the Mac OS X frontend - the only way I know is
to change it each time in the Setup screens, though you could probably write
a script to change the config for you when you load each frontend. I do see
problems with portability if you have either multiple tuners or multiple
frontends (simultaneous viewing of same live TV stream).
