The problem is, that the channel selection does not work in a proper
Suppose you have the channels:
A B C D E F G
* => currently selected channel
Now (in vlc) you press N for "next". "B" gets selected. "N"...nothing
happens. "N" .... "D" gets selected. "P" (previous) ... "C" gets
selected. Sometimes you have to go even three steps forward and two
backward to get a certain channel selected.
A few channel sometime are not selectable at all....
Same with mplayer...so it is not the player itsself...
What can I do?
Any help is very appreciated !
