Number of Channels to Display in the program guide is being futzed with for no apparent reason. Maybe at one time it needed messing with? It doesn't need it anymore that I can find. Commenting out or removing the following bit of code from guidegrid.cpp fixes the issue.

I'm seeing when I tell it to show 8 rows, it may show 6. Not all themes change the guide size like the example you posted creating the same effect in reverse, blootube-wide is one, I belive glass is another. I see where the code is needed for the ones that do though. would be great if it would scale based on the guide bounding box difference between the 2 guide types.

This code is being re-written for 0.22, in the new version the number of channels visible will be defined by the theme.
