Is "1" a valid channel number ?
I've forgotten where you are trying to go with this.
With mythtv-0.24-fixes (latest git) on my systems here,
LiveTV does not correctly save the most recently tuned channels.
It only updates the saved channel number for the first channel
tuned on each specific tuner card.
So, if I manually enter "25" as a channel number, it will find
a tuner that knows about channel "25", tune to that channel,
and save "25" as the new number for that tuner in mysql.
But not if was already using that exact same tuner (on a different
channel) when I manually entered "25". Bug.
I have a patch here somewhere to make it behave correctly
for my own setup.
