Can someone elaborate on how Channel History (letter "h" command?)
works?? [I'm away from my FE and am using wiki/googling today to plan
some changes tonight.]
In regard to Channel History, the documentation says that each click of
"h" during LiveTV will tune to the previous channel relative to some
list maintained by the FE? Any background on how that list is created
and maintained? (i.e. is it new per LiveTV session, maintained on/per
CASE: If I tuned (oldest to newest) channels 2 -> 5 -> 7 -> 9 and then
pressed "h" once, I would be tuned from *9* back to *7*? Click "h"
again and I revert further to *5*?
IS THAT CORRECT?
The channel history sequence is literal correct? If I tuned to 2 -> 5
-> 5 -> 5 -> 5 and hit "h", it just pops the first *5* off the stack and
retunes to the previous *5*? (i.e. the "h" command doesn't try to
out-think silly user tricks - in this case would it return to the first
dissimilar value == *2*?)
I assume it is possible to reach the end of the available Channel
History? If so, what happens onscreen (general description)? [i.e.
"End of Channel History" is shown]
Finally, is there a channel history FORWARD command/key? If I tuned 2
-> 5 -> 7 -> 9, then hit "h" and "h", I should be on *5*, and then I
click "_somekey_"?? and am put forward one position on the channel
history list to *7*...
I don't see a key reference to this capability, is that possible? If
so, How please?
