Unable to change channel to a composite input

I have a "Video over DSL" box here which I hook up to the composite input of my capture card. When I try to change channels to the channel defined for my composite input, it switches inputs: 2005-08-30 21:54:09.609 Channel(/dev/video0)::SwitchToInput?(in 5)

And next it tries to tune to a channel. I have left the frequency id blank for this channel since there is no tuning going on, on my composite input. So this is what happens: 2005-08-30 21:54:10.125 Channel::GetCurrentChannelNum?(): Failed to find Channel 2005-08-30 21:54:10.133 Channel(/dev/video0)::TuneTo?(): curList[-1].freq(-1) 2005-08-30 21:54:10.147 Channel(/dev/video0)::TuneTo?(): Error, failed to find channel. 2005-08-30 21:54:10.156 SetChannelByString?() failed

And next it switches back to the previous channel I was watching. Whole backend log attached.

I'm attaching a patch that skips tuning for channels which freqid is blank/null.

An external channel change script should be defined for non-tuner inputs.
