Configuring Backend: Channel Search Fails To Find Any Channels

Reported by: i_chesworth@… Owned by: danielk
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - Channel Scanner Version: 0.23rc1
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I have a new, clean Mythbuntu installation running MythTV 0.23 RC1. Everything is configured appropriately and the 3 Hauppauge USB (a NOVA-TD and a NOVA-T) tuners have been correctly detected and configured.

Running "Scan For Channels" when configuring the backend fails to detect any DVB channels - It just runs through the Channel 5 - Timeout, Channel 6 - Timeout..... and so on for some 50 channels or so.

Running the "scan" tool with the exact same adapter (0 in this case) detects 3 different multiplexes and the corresponding 13/14 channels. Saving the output to a channels.conf and importing that into the backend works correctly.

During the import of channels.conf, the backend will tune to the multiplex and agree there is a channel there. Later on, the frontend correctly connects to each channel on each multiplex.

I have had channels correctly detected during setup of a 0.21 backend (some time previously). This system is based in Melbourne, Australia; should that have any impact on the problem.


- nVidia ION-based system (with Intel Atom 330)
- 4 GiB RAM
- 80 GiB HDD
- Hauppauge NOVA-T stick (USB2; single tuner)
- Hauppauge NOVA-TD stick (USB2; dual tuner)

- Mythbuntu 10.04 RC1 (64-bit)
    NB: Installation is both a primary backend and a frontend.

- nVidia Graphics Driver (closed-source)
- Shepherd channel information tool

Need mythtv-setup logs with "-v channel,record,siparser" to diagnose this.
