[mythtv-users] Starting on a channel that's turned off for the day.

I record episodes of children's programs on a channel that is only 
active between certain hours of the day. If I open up mythfrontend and 
go to watch live TV some time after the channel has closed down for the 
day, myth tries to access that channel (presumably because it was the 
last channel in use) and I get scrambled rubbish on my screen. 
Currently, I have to blindly (as that's no visual feedback that anything 
is happening) change channel to a number that I know will exist, exit 
mythfrontend, then open mythfrontend again and go to live TV. This time 
the channel I selected blindly will come up and all is fine.

It's a bit of a faf though. Is there any way around this? Any way to 
always start myth on a channel that I know is always active?
