Unfortunatelly, here it doesn't. You must have something different in
your setup. I have 5x multirec for each tuner and use "Browse all
channels" setting. Always been using this setting. Without it, I don't
see all available channels on all tuners (e.g. when recording). This bug
is present since I started using DVB-S with my MythTV about 2yrs ago.

It's the same whether I browse & select or enter a channel number &
select. LiveTV just switches to the first channel on the same tuner as

Just confirmed again, both switching "methods". Tuner1 recording sat1,
tuner2 recording sat2. LiveTV watching the same multiplex on tuner1/sat1
that backend is recording (different channel). I can browse only two
multiplexes from sat1 and sat2 - those that are being recorded on
tuner1/sat1 and tuner2/sat2. So far so good. But, switching within the
sat1 multiplex is OK, whereas switching to ANY channels on sat2
multiplex fails as always.

I'm using the latest trunk (24725), since last update - make distclean,
configure, make. I noticed a weird detail in this bug's ticket. It says
it only manifests when "Browse all channels" is off, but that's not
true. I've always been using it and this has never worked properly... :(
