I forgot to mention that there is a legitimate use for this patch.
BBC Parliment channel carries 1 video stream and 3 audio streams.
The video stream contains three smaller streams comprising of
2x BBC News 24 Interactive and 1x BBC Parliment.
The 3 audio streams correspond to each video stream.

At the moment you have to use +/- to change the audio channel.

At some point in the future these will work like they do on a
set top box, ie. The interactive stuff will all work, but that's
a work in progress. (I'm working on it, but it'll take a while..)
