Your patch made me have a look at a problem I've been seeing with the
OSD browser. If I browse trough a channel that doesn't have anything on
at the moment it still shows the previous program that was on. It would
be nicer it would show "no transmission" or even the "UnknownTitle"
value from the settings table that is also shown in the guide.
I am no programmer but I think the code currently just shows the last
program that was on. Another check should be added to see if the prev.
program is't over at the time of browsing. I've added something like
this to your patch (the first two lines) but since my C knowledge is
close to nonexisting it is a very dirty hack. But it should be an easy
fix for someone who actually knows what he's doing and that's why I post
it anyway.
