Oh, I agree but at least now it isn't broken clutter =). I had
no interest in applying the original patch but there was a valid
point that wasn't highlighted in the original thread. That is,
the user is most likely to want to know which video source is
available on the current input.

The reason I originally put this OSD item in for every input change was
to know which card and which input on that card was being used. The
patch would blur that and defeated the purpose. Now one can optionally
put, "Card 2 - Digital Cable" in place of the default "2: Video 0".
As long as it shows which specific input is in use, I'm fine with it.
