I have a backend loaded with Mythbuntu 11.04 (cannot get 11.10 to boot)with 3 PVR-150's and a pcHDTV HD-5500. I have attempted to scan for channels on the PVR-150's, but I have not gotten any channel locks. It just flies through all the channels without giving any errors. I have found some information that seems to indicate that analog channel scanner function in MythTV is broken, and has been since version 0.21. I checked the bug reports and found one for the analog channel scanner, and it was unclear whether it was fixed, or just closed. Seems as there was little concern about it getting fixed. I am guessing this was the case since we were all supposed to be digital starting back in 2008. Well, my local cable provider is still broadcasting 54 channels in analog, and only 5 are available as unencrypted digital. I even contacted them and asked them if they were planning to switch over to all digital, and their reply was that they were leaving things as-is for the foreseeable future, due to the equipment investment they currently have in their infrastructure.
Is there any plans to fix the analog channel scanner? If not, are the clear instructions that I can find on how to setup the analog channels without being able to scan them into my setup?
Thanks in advance to anyone willing to shed some light on this issue.
