Thanks for looking at this guys. I'm sure that
there's a reason why changing the inputs was disabled
while the tuner is on. I think it was the link
provided that said that it would corrupt the mpeg
What I'd like to know is why doesn't the command to
switch inputs turn off the tuner and make the switch
safely? I'm thinking that this could be implemented
either in Mythtv or in the driver. I think it would
make better sense if Mythtv itself turned off the
tuner before making the switch to a different input.
