View Full Version : Issue after adding 2 new channels

Myth 9.04.
I've just scanned for and added two new channels. The channels appear in the guide but are not in the list when selecting live channels. Furthermore, if I select live viewing of one of these channels from the guide, I can only select these two channls while in live viewing mode.
There's nothing that I've set for this behaviour and I only use the one playback group (default)

Any ideas?


I've another issue but will put that in another post.

Sounds like these two channels are from a different video source than the others? Somewhere in the vast cavern that is the Mythtv setup pages (perhaps TV playback settings?) there is a checkbox called something like 'Browse channels from all sources'.
I installed a DVB-S card for BBC-HD only, and had to select this. Otherwise, Myth will only allow you to browse between channels on the same video source.

In my case I could watch BBC-HD, and only that or I could watch everything but. With this box checked, I can browse through all channels from LiveTV.

Thanks. That sounds reasonable, I'll give the b/e a check in that area, although there should only be one source set up and there's only one DVBs card.

Yes - that was bob on thanks - changed from 'All channels' to the name of the source and now they're there. Strange it's that way round and not the other - you'd expect everything to be in 'All Channels'
