Not sure if I understood what you're talking about, but I /think/ you're
saying you want to be able to prefer a local action over a jump point
when both are mapped to the same key. If so:
http://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/3363 (note that this was
incorporated, then reverted)
https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/commit/7d569c0e (this is using the
desired approach--fix each case of "should use local binding in
following messages in thread)
and a bunch more threads with a bunch of discussion about why we require
individual code changes whenever we want a key binding to override a
jump point in some location.
So, if you want "Live TV In Guide" registered as a "Jump Point with
local override", you should submit a patch changing it to use
REG_JUMPLOC. However, since "Program Guide" is already registered as a
"Jump Point with local override" which prefers the "TV Frontend/GUIDE"
key binding (default S), you should test what happens when an invalid
configuration is created such that "Live TV In Guide", "Program Guide",
and "TV Frontend/GUIDE" all use the same binding of S.
