Oh yes, should be something like that, having an "active" list, a hotkey to
change it, and then apply that to the EPG, down/up keys etc. Regarding to
favorites, don't you think that they have to work just like now? So then you
still have favorites within the context of a channel list...
Note that still a lot to do here however. I do only populate the lists with
bulk loads of channels, I did already here because if not, I was going to
miss something that was present at the sources, and later on could be
interesting to use, all the other, including some kind og editing
capabilites of the list still have to be done... any help on this will be
very wellcome ;-)

Good night to everybody
