I don't know if that can be useful for an htpc; my point is that (for
example, in order to to 5th channel) I can press the "channel" button
which pop up an OSD with the ten buttons (0-9) and then I can select
the desired channel.
Or simply, using the "Browse View" with the channel up down buttons
and then confirm the selected channel.
