Mythtv-setup hangs in Capture Card

I have recently added a HDHomerun DUO to my configuration. However I cannot get mythtv-setup to get through the Capture Card process. This appears very similar to a previous bug report #12897 for which the error appeared to go away on its own accord.

The relevant part of the setup log appears to be:

2017-11-30 17:00:08.532770 D [1759/1759] CoreContext? recorders/vboxutils.cpp:89 (doUPNPSearch) - VBox: Found 2 possible VBoxes 2017-11-30 17:00:08.532859 D [1759/1759] CoreContext? recorders/vboxutils.cpp:114 (doUPNPSearch) - VBox: Found possible VBox at HDHomeRun DMS 10618811 ( 2017-11-30 17:00:08.944212 I [1759/1759] CoreContext? recorders/vboxutils.cpp:106 (doUPNPSearch) - VBox: GetDeviceDesc?() failed for <Unknown> 2017-11-30 17:00:08.953479 E [1759/1759] CoreContext? v4l2util.cpp:58 (Open) - V4L2(): Could not open :

The HDHomeRun has been correctly identified so communication must be possible. A database entry for the HDHomeRun has also been automatically generated in the table below:

select * from videosource; +----------+------------+------------------+--------+-----------+----------+----------+--------+------------+------------+ | sourceid | name | xmltvgrabber | userid | freqtable | lineupid | password | useeit | configpath | dvb_nit_id | +----------+------------+------------------+--------+-----------+----------+----------+--------+------------+------------+ | 1 | Tuner US | /bin/true | | us-bcast | NULL | NULL | 0 | NULL | -1 | | 3 | HD HomeRun? | schedulesdirect1 | | default | NULL | NULL | 0 | NULL | -1 | +----------+------------+------------------+--------+-----------+----------+----------+--------+------------+------------+

but no entry is generated in the CaptureCard? table. (N.B The previous card uses cardid 17 and 18).

I have waited 30 minutes (as suggested elsewhere) but still in a loop.

Is there any fix for this? or can someone suggest a fudge to modify database table entries to get round this impasse?

I can provide additional details if required but cannot use the HDHomeRun at present.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

Further to my original post, I MAY not have understood how Capture Card is supposed to work. When a new card is created, it appears as a new entry at the end of the list of cards. This can be not visible (as it needs scrolling to) when pressing the new card request.

I have now managed to create the new HomeRun? card. However it should be noted (using remote X11 connection), the Rt-Arrow key is necessary to view the configuration sub menu. Pressing the mouse on the screen rt-arrow just brings up the menu of available tuners.

In conclusion, the bug as reported above, may be unjustified. However I still have problems with scheduling the HDHomeRuns which whilst working don't appear to be recognised by the scheduler

The new setup is designed to be used with keyboard or remote, not with the mouse. It works the same way as the frontend screens.
