Great.  And, as the author of the DD support in Myth, you're probably an
excellent candidate.  Of course, you'll have to get to know some of
Daniel's lineup-management changes, but they're pretty straightforward.

Yeah.  I've seen you working some late nights on that.

The submitter seemed to be using it and it /looks/ right to me.  :) 
It's really a pretty simple patch that just verifies that a channel
found in the lineup exists in /any/ video source (rather than just the
current video source) before it removes the channel from the DD lineup.

(I'm wondering how many of those DD's should have been Z2L's, but I
think you get my drift.)
