HDTV channels are on a different card (pchdtv3k as opposed to the svideo
in on the freestyle). There is no mechanism in place to have the EPG
know that it needs to, in effect, press the C button to change cards, or
to know that it needs to, in effect, press Y to change inputs. If youd
like to code it up, a patch is always welcome. Plenty of people have
asked for this, but apparently its not wanted/needed that bad as its not
been worked on. I just bound a key on my remote to the C and Y keys and
use it, not that much harder, one extra keystroke.
