The code is commented out in DvbPanel::playLastChannel()
One would just have to uncomment that code (at the top) and comment out the 
active code (at bottom).
Then start kaffeine and click the "Play DVB" button on kaffeine' Start page 
(channels are not displayed but streamed to avoid involving xine, so make 
sure to setup dvb broadcast parameters).
To stop, you have to quit kaffeine.
