Is this fix OK? (1 Viewer)

I have put a fix into my local code to correct the following problem:

If you play a shoutcast (maybe all?) radio stream, then press the TV Guide button, the TV turns on (TV Guide must do this) but the radio audio does not turn off. So you hear both audios.

I bascially just put a additional call into the remote handling code so that when the TV Guide button is pressed, a ACTION_STOP is sent to stop the radio audio prior to the ActivateWindow call to invoke the guide. This works great. However now most of the time that I press the TV Guide button, the TV does not turn on automatically. I'm sure due to the ACTION_STOP being sent and the asynchronous nature of these messages, This leads me to two questions:

1) Why is the TV turned on automatically when you open the guide?

2) Will there be any problems if the TV does not turn on when the guide is opened?

When you select a channel from the guide, the TV is turned on then if it isn't on already. So far I haven't seen any bad behavior because of this change. But I don't use timeshifting, so I figured I'd ask before I ship it off to frodo :).

Of course, if there is a better way to fix this, I'd love to hear it.

Thanks.

Hi CyberSimian, I have concluded the same thing. Disabled "Show last active module when resuming" and go to TV after starting up in the Home screen. Would be nice if it could start on TV (if that's where MP was when put to sleep), just like my older Panasonic PVR. But this workaround is reasonable. I will add that sometimes, even...

Right - I've found the option to display the next episodes in the series BUT If there are <3 episodes left then you just get black squares as placeholders for the other episodes. Think I'll pass the parameters by changing the 'Unwatched' tile. So is there such a parameter or how can I do it??
