    Cannot import Channels.conf

    I've successufully scanned all the satellite channels on my Hauppauge Nova-S Plus card and have a Channels.conf file. When I give this to MythTV backend setup it doesn't complain, but then it gets stuck on 3% scanning for channels.

    I can't work out what is wrong here. I can see the channels if I type mplayer dvb://[channel name] but I can't get MythTV to pick them up. I've even gone into the Watch TV section on the MythTV frontend to see if it's still stored them, but it's just a blank channel.

    Can anyone help? Is this a bug?

    Re: Cannot import Channels.conf

    I finally figured this thing out. It sounds like there is sometimes a problem with the 0.20 version and importing a channels.conf file. What I did was add each frequency as a transport. Then when I scanned for channels I told it to search existing transports. After that everything worked just fine.
