View Full Version : Scanning channels and permissions

December 28th, 2010, 10:37 PM

I have two weird problems. My first is that running mythtv-setup in Terminal will get me 'Can't open card /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' errors, but running it with sudo will be fine. I think I need to add to the mythtv group maybe?

Secondly, when I am running as sudo and scanning my channels, I must be missing something so obvious it was considered not worthy of the manual. I've run scan and generated a channels.conf file. Now, I went into mythtv-setup (I'm doing this over VNC), went to Channel Scan, typed the path to channels.conf and MythTV ran the scan. It then told me X non-conflicting channels detected. I selected Insert Automatically and then I was prompted about Unused transports - I just pressed ignore. Now I might be missing something and I hope I am. Why don't the channels then show up in channel editor? It's like there added but they're not going through to the DB.

Very confused.
