DVB-T: Wrong PMT prevents recording of all channels on UK Mux C

Reported by: freddie@… Owned by: Janne Grunau
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - DVB Version: 0.24.1
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I run a Mythbuntu 11.04 system with two DVB-T tuners: a Hauppauge Nova-T and Hauppauge Nova-T 500. Neither are able to record/watch channels on Mux C (Sky News, E4+1 and the such).

The frontend shows: (TLMs) Partial Lock on both tuners for live TV. The backend log shows:

I have done full rescans (using both cards as the one to do the scanning on). They always find the channels on Mux C. Other DVB-T devices in the house (two televisions on the same aerial have no trouble with these channels).

I suppose this may be a local thing. I get my signal from Waltham and have just made brief recordings from both E4+1 and Sky News.

Yes, it does appear to be a local thing. Before moving house I was using the Oxford transmitter where the multiplex worked fine. However, after moving to London (I believe the Crystal Palace transmitter) and retuning I can no longer get Mux C.

Stale database: delete all digital channels and old transports before rescan. If still no good seek help on users' list. Cheers.

Resolution: Works for me
Status: newclosed

I've just done a test recording from Sky News from Crystal Palace and it's recorded fine.

You need to delete all transports and all channels and perform a full rescan.

The delete all transports is vital.....
