Ok, at first glance it looked like a remote problem, but further
investigations showed that the problem is at a different place.

In 1.3.40 the new channel switch code (with fast switch on
key-repeat) was introduced.
The next available channel (if there is one) is determined in
cDisplayChannel::NextAvailableChannel(). The GetDevice() call
there uses priority 0.

Unfortunaly my system has one DVB card only and PrimaryLimit is
setup to 20, so NextAvailableChannel() newer returns a channel.

If I raise priority to at least PrimaryLimit, it works as

For a one card system I certainly would replace
  GetDevice(Channel, 0)
  GetDevice(Channel, Setup.PrimaryLimit)

I'm not sure how this will effect a multi-card system.
