UX: Previous Channel Button in Live TV

Reported by: skd5aner <skd5aner@…> Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.25-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: UX, previous channel
Cc: Ticket locked: no


The previous channel button in Live TV doesn't look at the actual last channel that a user may have watched, only the last channel on the current video source.

For example.

Tuner 1 - Can tune channels 2-99 Tuner 2 - Can tune channels 2-1000

If you start live TV on Tuner 1, and you are on channel 2, and then you manually tune to channel 1000 which leverages tuner 2. After you land on tune 2, the previous channel button will leverage whatever the last channel was that tuner 2 was tuned to, not channel 2 which was the last channel the user actually watched.

Proper UX (and every other TV & STB in the world) would say that the previous channel should always be whatever the last channel the user was watching regardless of which tuner the backend was/is leveraging. This should be transparent to the user.
