    I tried searching for this, but couldn't find anything so if this feature has already been suggested, I'm sorry.

    I would like to be able to show some sort of loading animation when tuning a channel.
    The reason for this is that when tuning from a client, it usually takes somewhere between 5 and 8 seconds before the channel gets shown - meanwhile MP just "hangs".

    It would be great to have MP showing that it is actually doing something, because right now I don't know if it just crashed or is tuning a channel.

    :D for a great software, the switch to tvserver after RC1 has been amazing. Hopefully soon my girlfriend will forget how long time I have been messing around with the machine and it not working ;)
