New Revision: 7447
   Changeset: http://cvs.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/7447




Check for NULL channel in a couple more places inside TVRec in order to
get the videodevice = "file:/directory/path/to/filename.mpg" functionality
working again.

Explanation below for those who don't know what I mean by that...  :)

The "file:" test code allows you to create a dummy MPEG capturecard by
setting the videodevice for a MPEG capturecard to be something like
"file:/the/full/path/to/some/mpeg2/file/you/have.mpg".  The mpegrecorder
will "record" from this file at approximately 30fps.  This works for
testing recordings as well as LiveTV although neither can change channels
obviously.  This is useful for testing on machines without tuner cards
or to simulate multiple tuners on a single-tuner system.
