The problem would not only show up while replaying. If someone is watching
live TV on the server's primary device and it's not the same channel the
client is receiving, the client will switch channels.

The current implementation assumes a headless server running the
dummydevice-plugin as primary device. To get rid of the channel switch, the
client could pass the requested channel's ID in its "plug femon info" calls.
The server femon would then lookup which device receives the corresponding
transponder and return this device's signal information. What do you think?
