Now that you mention it, I had the same naming issue here. You see, if
you tune into a station with your tuner (frequency-thing), that's called
a channel. However, an input/output (cable/tuner, composite, s-video) is
called a channel too. I'll name them tracks, too, I think. Then again,
how do you call selecting the track (tuning? selecting?) and selecting a
tuner frequency (tuning?)? ;).

Man, this terminology is getting on my nerves. ;).

Thanks for committing the patch, btw!
