Crash on number press with SmartChannelChange

If you enable SmartChannelChange? and play a recording, mythfrontend crashes on a number press.

The issue with SmartChannelChange? enabled, a number press causes a call to ChannelCommit?(), which apparently causes problems. I have not traced where the eventual crash takes place, but presume it's a cause of querying or setting the channel when not in live TV.

Patch is simple and follows.

It may have implications if you are watching a recording that was still being recorded. I've noticed that I was somehow able to change the channel in this mode. I do not view this as a feature and have not tried to reproduce the behavior predictably. I suspect that this is not intended behavior anyway.

Belt and suspenders fix.

  1. Do not call ChannelCommit?() from ChannelKey?() unless StateIsLiveTV().
  1. If !StateIsLiveTV(), then ChannelCommit?() calls ChannelClear?() and returns without going further.
