Related to the above, when tuning to an off-air channel (as discussed
before, in the UK these usually switch to a data stream of some sort),
you get stuck, as next time entering live tv will attempt to tune to the
same channel (which is helpfully also saved in the database). Ideally,
some kind of no signal/no video message would be displayed and you'd
just be able to browse to another channel. I've no idea how difficult
this would be to do though, so another solution might be the appropriate
I also have:
* seeking in LiveTV is broken. (For me, DVB only).
* channel changing causes some kind of deadlock occasionally
For the latter, my previous patch vs the different method that you came
up with appeared to work ok, although I can't say for certain as they
weren't applied to the same SVN revisions, and plenty else has changed
since then. (I appreciate that my patch was technically wrong as it is
waiting for the tune to fully complete).
Sorry I'm not making much progress with the above, I haven't really
figured out what the code is doing yet. I'm more than happy to help
with testing etc until I manage to get up to speed though.
