[mythtv-users] Live TV "change input" issue

At times a recording fails to start as the tuner cannot get a lock, say on tuner1. I leave it in
this state hoping it will get a lock later, but also decide to start a separate live tv recording.

I start Watch-TV, select the channel I want to record, and myth picks the bad tuner1. Still no lock.

I now use "change input" and pick another tuner. Myth does this but also changes the channel
to whatever it remembers this tuner used last time. I enter the desired channel and myth then
changes back to the bad channel - not what I wanted.

If I kill the original stuck scheduled recording then myth will happily change to any channel
without changing the source.

How do I select an input (a tuner) and a channel even when the same channel it already tuned
on another tuner?
