Trying to tune to missing OTA channel crashes mythbackend

Component: mythtv Version: 0.19

Cc: Ticket locked: no


I use 0.19-fixes (ATrpms) and have a HD5000 ATSC capture card. I crashed mythbackend with the following steps:

  • Tune to 381 with LiveTV.
  • Exit LiveTV.
  • Delete 381 from the database (using MythVideo?'s channel-settings edit feature)
  • Enter LiveTV again.

The last messages left in mythbackend.log are:

DVB#0 ERROR - Unable to find channel in database.
DVB#0 ERROR - Failed to get channel options for channel 381.
TVRec(3) Error: Failed to set channel to 381.
TVRec(3) Error: Channel '381' was not found in the database. Most likely, your DefaultTVChannel setting is wrong. Could not start livetv.
TVRec(3) Error: CreateLiveTVRingBuffer() failed
TVRec(3) Error: Failed to create RingBuffer 1
TVRec(3): Changing from WatchingLiveTV to None
