Yes (settings.LastFreeCard) but that is sort of a backwards way of doing it
really. It merely uses the last available card for viewing live TV. It
probably would suffice in most cases. However there's still the possibility
of it overriding live TV when it doesn't need to. 

Thanks, I hadn't noticed that one, so I will see how well it works for me in
