The 'status' plugin, part of the VDR source, does not yet use the new
LiveView parameter.

Just one of many plugin breakages. People should look out for warnings
like this:
> ../../../include/vdr/status.h:33: warning: ‘virtual void cStatus::ChannelSwitch(const cDevice*, int, bool)’ was hidden
> status.c:21: warning:   by ‘virtual void cStatusTest::ChannelSwitch(const cDevice*, int)’
This usually means that channel switch reporting is no longer working!

People with C++11 compatible compilers can enable C++11 support and add
another declaration like this to cStatus:
>   virtual void ChannelSwitch(const cDevice *Device, int ChannelNumber) final;
That will cause the wrong parameters to be treated as an error.
