I agree that this list at times is somewhat US-centric. This shouldn't
be surprising since the initial development was done by yanks, but all
of us should try and remember it is a global project.
At least in the US, browse mode or the program guide is a much better
way to find out what's on the other channels than channel surfing, since
there is a high probability of landing on a commercial when you switch
to another channel.
You can't blame developers for not wanting to work on a "problem" that
doesn't bother them. If you really want fast channel switching just
watch your TV set directly, and use Myth only to record.
