Live TV Input Order Ignored During Channel Changes

Description

Prior to 0.25, a Live TV input order was added. This feature allows one to specify the order that a particular input will be used when launching Live TV. It works well, but unfortunately is only respected at the initial launch of Live TV. After Live TV has been launched, the tuners will leverage the standard order based on the order that the inputs were added and will ignore the live tv order setting after any channel changes. This is especially noticeable when leveraging different video sources across channels.

Simple Example:

3 tuners - A, B, C

Recording Order/Added? Order: A-1 B-2 C-3

Live TV Order: A-3 B-2 C-1

After launching Live TV, tuner C will be chosen, however, if you are changing the channel, and it would need to select a different tuner perhaps because a channel uses a different video source, the tuner selected would no longer be selected based on the Live TV order.
