What about extending channel groups to include mythfrontend LiveTV
playback, so that if the starting channel is not in the frontend's
playback channel group, it will ignore the (potentially unplayable)
starting channel and start on one it can handle? Something to add to
my ever-growing todo list perhaps?

Certainly cheaper than a new frontend!
