Well, no. Previously live TV and related receivers were treated the same way
(same priority, both handled as if they were not present). Currently we have
different priorities (-1 and -99) and both are not ignored. So the -99
receiver is not in the way when switching live TV, but it will have an impact
on device selection. Ignoring receivers with IDLEPRIORITY (or likewise
MINPRIORITY) would solve this.
