[snipped description of how to "sort of" do this]

i played around doing pretty much what you suggested
i hit the changing channel in live-tv issue you described

the reason for doing this is that i have a sat box which only has a scart 
connection with RGB. i'm going to have to buy/build an RGB to s-video 
convertor so i can plug in sat box into the s-video input of my pvr350

i'll have a look at the code and see if i can work out how to do this 

regard (and thanks for the help)
