 Wife unit tried to switch to LiveTV to watch a show that started at 19:00.
 All she received was a blank screen.  She left it there until I got home
 at 20:02.  I'm sorry to say that I didn't have the presence of mind to do
 an strace or gdb before hitting escape.

 I later found the frontend log to be filled with 29000 occurrences (eight
 a second) of:

 Repeated TV: Attempting to change from None to None

 1. Any idea what caused a lockup that resulted in a change from None to
 None, and therefore a blank screen?

 2. Is there any way that the logging function, upon receiving the same
 message as the previous message, could wait at least a second, if not
 more, to log an identical message to prevent hyperactive messages like
 this one from filling up logs in record time?
