    Problem:
    When watching live TV if you change the channel through the TV guide the mini display will display the previously watched channel.

    For example if I am watching

    BBC ONE
    MOTD: World Cup


    then press Guide on my remote and choose ITV1's Britains got Talent the channel will change but the mini display will still show

    BBC ONE
    MOTD: World Cup


    instead of

    ITV1
    Britains got Talent


    Other observances:
    If you use the ch+/- buttons or tune to a channels LCN number using the number pad the mini display shows the correct info.

    If I press the info button on the remote whilst the mini display shows the wrong information then the OSD will briefly display the wrong channel logo but the right channel name/programme info then show the correct logo. After which the mini display will show the right channel information on screen.



    If I enter the TV Guide then exit it again it will also correct the info shown on the mini display.

    Can confirm this. Can't quite figure out when it is right (probably when you first start TV) but you get

    If you change channel twice you get

    Channel 1 => Name shown correctly
    Channel 2 => Channel 1 Name shown
    Channel 3 => Channel 2 Name shown

    this appears to be the same whether changing channel via guide, channel +/- or channel number

    will add this to Mantis later

    That's exactly what I see. You can correct it by entering a menu, say TV Guide and then exiting back to live TV again. Or by pressing info and then closing it.

    For me I can only replicate it 100% if I change channels through the guide. If I change channels by any other method it's OK 90% of the time.
