If there is more than one source, it matter to know which channels
are and aren't available for the selected input. I added the OSD
message long ago so I could tell what I was looking at when testing
and know what Ys and Cs to press to get to the input I needed.
If the objection is that any message appear on screen when changing
inputs, then displayname=" " should help get rid of these messages =).

As for user friendly, it seems to me that some people may get higher
WAF with "VCR" on screen rather than "2: Composite1" or "Dish Network"
in place of "1: S-Video 0".

I'll agree with you there. I've added text to try to clarify that
this is an optional field that does not have to be filled in.
