Yeah, I got that.  I'm the guy that originally figured that out years ago. :)
It successfully tunes the first channel on entry to LiveTV,
and plays it just fine.  But hitting channel up/down retunes it
and the frontend never successfully plays the newly tuned channel.

After it dies, I can go back in, reenter LiveTV, and it then plays fine
again, this time on the channel it crashed on earlier.

And so on.
