#6558 closed patch (wontfix)

Make channel scanning for HDHomerun channels more permissive.

Reported by: Marc Alban <marcalban@…> Owned by: danielk
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.21.1
Component: MythTV - Channel Scanner Version: 0.21-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: hdhomerun
Cc: Ticket locked: no


When scanning for channels on my HDHomerun I get the following message for most of the TimeWarner? ClearQAM channels that should be tunable:

"Found channel, but it doesn't match existing tsid. You may wish to delete existing channels and do a full scan."

Looking closer, the tsid and networkid listed in the ServiceDescriptionTable? objects are both '1' and all of the entries in the 'dtv_multiplex' table have networkid = NULL and transportid = NULL.

I'm not sure if it is my cable provider, MythTV, or the HDHomerun firmware that has changed, because I was able to successfully scan these channels about 6 months ago.

I have attached a patch which enabled me to scan the tunable channels. I'm not very familiar with the scanning code, so if this is incorrect feel free to close the ticket or point me in the right direction.

Also, I found that the trunk was able to scan the channels.

You have indicated that the current version of trunk is able to correctly scan for channels. As the channel scanner in head has been rewritten for the next release i'm going to mark this as 'wontfix' since we want to concentrate on fixing bugs in the new scanner, rather than bugs in the "known to be broken" previous release.

Thank you for you hard work anyway
