Sorry, had no idea that GetChannelInfo would hit the database so much.
It did this every second so you could see program info changes while 
watching live tv.

So now I've got two questions because I really want this to work (and 
I'm not the only one for sure).

1. Is there a way to get this channel information without hitting the 
database so much? (Is there a function that does local caching of the 
results for eample?)

2. Why isn't it thread-safe? I tried to model the LCD code as much as 
possible on the OSD code thinking that if it was okay to update the OSD 
it would probably be okay to update the LCD as well. But if you can tell 
me where/how it can go wrong I'll fix it (or at least try to).
