I know similar situations where I don't want to have live TV, for
example if this would tune to problematic channels (streamdev client) or
would interrupt other receivers.

Another good solution to this would be a real 'dummy' device, a
receiving device that permanently receives a still picture, and that
would be assigned to a free channel number. This would also be nice for
a playback-only VDR without receiving devices, to avoid the frequent
'channel not available' messages.

I've once tried to write such a plugin, however these attempts were
missing some code to turn a single mpeg still frame into an endless
sequence with proper time codes.
