The problem with this is that it gets reset each time you change the
channel to the currently tuned one.


This seems to be related to the "channel crawling" feature that's been
muted, i.e the DVB code would when mythtv was idle tune to each of the
channels and attempt to update the EPG.

However it's not bubbled to the top of the list yet.
