The problem is not trivial. The only way to change channel is to send the
number of the channel as keystroke and then send the enter keystroke. Look
in my tunebox.cpp as I did it. A timeout on the combobox let you decide the
channel to tune.
Now I am a bit busy with my family and work, feel free to work on it.
