Wouldn't the old behavior still change the channel to the last channel
that Myth had used, so if your son is watching live tv, changes the
channel since Myth had control of the box, and you go to live tv, it
would still change the channel (not to mention what would happen if
Myth decides to record on that tuner, which definitely would change
the channel when your son is watching)?
I think the solution is to either not use Myth to watch live tv
(something that has been preached since well before I started using
Myth at version .14 (early 2004)), dedicate the STBs with Myth to Myth
and not allow changes to the channel (which is something I don't do, I
have my STB connected to my TV to watch live tv and myth via firewire
to capture with the recognition that Myth will take control of that
box at times), get another box so your son does not cross with you, or
train your son so he does not cross with you.
