If I am watching Live TV on analog, I can get to the digital channels by
pressing 'M' and bringing up the Menu, and then selecting 'Program
Guide' (top entry) and then selecting the channel I want in the EPG.
I can go back from digital to analog by the same route.
But using Browse to show the Program information in the On-Screen
Display, will (as you note) only show the channels which are available
with the present tuner.
It might seem odd, but it makes sense. In LiveTv Browse, you want to
continue watching (supposedly) what you presently have on. But when you
are in the Guide, you are not actually watching anything.
And changing tuners involves a lot more than changing channels.
...How many psychiatrists does it take to change a tuner? Only one but
the tuner really has to want to change.
