Who knows?? Perhaps the neighbours might be upset if those big wall mounted 
speakers were used to watch TV all day, but they don't mind music in the 
evening? Maybe the amplifier is connected to speakers around the house - you 
might want to hear music as you walk around but not TV audio.

There has to be a good reason why mythmusic included a separate setting in the 
first place. If there isn't, I don't see the harm in leaving it now, assuming 
my patch is accepted.
