if a recording tuning stage fails it then tries again but tunes to the previously tuned channel, and records the wrong channel.

(In [7060]) Closes #181.

I need more info, such as a log with "-v channel,record" to determine what exactly the problem was in #181, but this changes TVRec::SetChannel?() and ChannelBase::SwitchToInput?() to return false on failure, and abandon a recording if tuning fails.

My guess is that #181 didn't actually explicitly tune to the previous channel, but simply failed to tune to a new channel, and proceeded to record anyway. If this is the case this commit should address that problem. If it doesn't, reopen the ticket and add more info.
