sorry for being thick but there are lots of instances in signal monitor and
for SIParser where channel is required for dvb (live and record modes)
unless Im mistaken. backend log seems to show this.
there may need to be more checks for dvb and a channel open and close if its
not which I found necessary after the fact.
All I know is that it gets live tv working for me.
