Are you saying that a channel icon is (effectively) required by myth? 
And that the delay in tuning etc. is due to a 'search and not-find' delay?

If so, any thoughts on where/how to patch the code to skip the search 
entirely? I don't particularly care about having channel icons... I've 
not missed them to date, but I have noticed the delay in screen 
changing.. and I have an Epia Sp13000.
