Looking at master vs fixes/0.28, there may be some other
(less interesting to me, but perhaps interesting to others)
things, such as ratings (525bf8a).   So, it may be a bigger
backport than just the few for (better) consistency.

I would expect (although I have not recently checked)
that a new video source can readily result in new callsigns
depending on how those callsigns were acquired and
fed into MythTV (and I seem to recall that there was
some differences in some cases).

In any case, reviewing any/all rules after changing
video sources is a good plan (to avoid "surprises").
