Even without the primarylimit it's still deadly complex. The very
clever programming syntax used for the device selection makes it very
difficult to understand and also to debug.

I have an old idea in my head but I've never taken the time to do so,
it's also quite erratic: disable channel and device management and
allow an external program to decide how to deal with devices and
channels.
I wouldn't want to start from scratch and work around dvbstreamer,
vdr and its plugins are wonderful ! I love it ! (it's just the device
and channel management that are too limited imho)

I'm not really into C++, it might already be possible to let plugins
take over the channel and device management but i doubt it.
