Ultimately I couldn't fix the code, so I've ended up creating a dirty
hack to reset the value in cardinput.startchan to 1 (BBC ONE).
I've got a simple shell script that does the update if one or both of my
tuners are idle.
A better solution might be to patch the mythtv code so that startchan
never gets updated, but I'm a hacker by heart. :-)
