 	That's what I've said all along.  If one *really wanted* to do it, 
that would be probably the best way.  Is it worth it to save 500ms on a 
channel change?  Not for me... I don't surf anymore.

 	I only mention it in case someone has lots of ambition.  Seems (to 
me at least) like the best way to go.
