I said, I can go with the thought, it should be rather a native VDR
function. From the technical point of view you're right, it runs perfectly,
this function for people who know what to do. But where to hack is it
written down, that experts and specialist wouldn't like some comfort?
Whereas this might things easier for noob's starting to become an expert ...

But again, I also know this would not be easy to implement, unlike a "small"
function to enable or disable an entry in channels list thru OSD.

like from the user POV?

A couple of weeks ago I did use this feature in a friend's new installation,
it took around 15-20min in the background to gather ~ 500 channels from his
cable provider, while we did watch live tv in foreground. Ok, you need at
least one running entry in channels list, to make it happen. But this could
also be pre-defined iptv entry, like it is done w/ yaVDR ...
