 I have a single DVB card with a single input connected to 3 satellites via
 a diseqc. Mythbackend shows this:

 Everything works fine normally. However if you attempt to change channel
 in '''browse mode''' to a channel on a different input you will see the
 following output


 2009-01-31 20:30:33.773 ChannelBase(1): Failed to find channel(785) on
 current input (DVBInput #3) of card (1).
 2009-01-31 20:30:33.775 ChannelBase(1): Found channel(785) on another
 input (DVBInput #1) of card (1).
 2009-01-31 20:30:33.811 ChannelBase(1): Failed to find channel(384) on
 current input (DVBInput #3) of card (1).
 2009-01-31 20:30:33.813 ChannelBase(1): Found channel(384) on another
 input (DVBInput #2) of card (1).
 2009-01-31 20:30:33.818 TVRec(1): SetChannel(384) -- begin
 2009-01-31 20:30:33.818 ChannelBase(1): Looking for startchannel '384' on
 input 'DVBInput #1'
 2009-01-31 20:30:33.833 ChannelBase(1): Found startchannel '384' on input
 'DVBInput #2'
 2009-01-31 20:30:33.834 TVRec(1): HW Tuner: 1->1


 So it recognises that the channel i'm wanting to change to is not on the
 current input, but then changes to change the channel to the start channel
 but on a totally different input (i.e. the wrong channel). Once you are on
 this new (wrong) channel, you can no longer change channel in browse mode
 and you have to go to the EPG to change channels.

 I believe this bug is due to the fact that CheckChannel() ignores the
 filled in return field 'inputName'.

 I have attached a patch which seems to fix this for me however i'm not
 sure this is the right place to do this or if we're leaking anything here.

 I've marked this as major/high as i'm positive this is bug and should
 affect everyone with multiple satellites on a single dvb card.
