Or, if you check the available channels, 10 waits for a third
digit if there are channels in the 100s, 42 changes immediately
if there are no 400s, 9 changes immediately if there are no 90s
or 900s. However, this is overkill and may be more confusing
than useful.

My preference would be that, on startup, check to see if there
are channels over 100. If so, 3 digits else 2 digits.
