I think the current method is, one channel is tried on multiple
devices matching the same source type. Channel 1 is dvb-s, tried on
card-x to card-z of the same source type. I am not sure if there is a
way to roll-over to another channel/different source type. How would
this have to be handled? Will these channels be grouped together?
