Hmmm... I just recently got btaudio working and didn't 
notice it consciously.  I mostly just watch recordings.
LiveTV is for primates. just kidding... but seriously... 
yeah, mine does it too.  :(

When I mute the audio before a channel change with the
keyboard "|", I don't hear the pop.  Would this be a good 
candidate for "standard behavior" when changing channels?
1. mute or fade volume down
2. do that magic channel changing stuff done now
3. un-mute or fade volume back up after a short delay
   to give the tuner time to lock-on to the audio
