 With current trunk, I am no longer able to see the "You should have
 received a channel lock by now" OSD message when a Live TV channel tune
 fails.  On a nonexistent (VOD) or off-air channel, the screen just hangs
 on black and eventually fails back to the menu, usually with "Video frame
 buffering failed too many times."

 I am suspecting this is part and parcel of the OSD merge or the OSD
 timeout changes, but I'm setting milestone to .24 as it leaves the user
 unable to ever start Live TV again without going into mythtv-setup and
 resetting the starting channel.  An ideal solution would restore the
 proper function of this popup and incorporate some form of Mark Buechler's
 "Only save the starting channel when it actually tunes" patch from #4807.
