[mythtv] Strange EPG behavior

I think that's where I was headed with my thinking as well.  It is
unfortunate though, because I like the full view EPG better than the
condensed EPG that shows when in LiveTV mode.  I disagree though that the
EPG can't tune the channel is a bad behavior.  If a show is currently
showing, I should have the option to tune the channel to watch it from the
Guide.  The Guide is more than scheduling shows, it is also like the "TV
Guide channel" for me showing me what is on and letting me tune in to watch
it.  I haven't checked, but maybe there is an option that exists or could be
added to use the full EPG instead of the EPG with the preview box which
would accomplish, in essence, what I'm looking for if I make it launch
LiveTV and then immediately enter the EPG.
