Comment(by peabody124 at gmail.com):

 It didn't make the frontend crash with a seg fault - probably poor choice
 of words.  It dropped back to the frontend with an error.  But it seems
 like if you are watching tv and tune to a channel that doesn't work (or
 say a sub channel that isn't running right now) then there should be a
 message in the livetv section "Warning: could not access channel" and
 allow you to retune.  This also applies to things like music channels
 which you see fine and are valid streams, but mythfrontend can't work with
 right now.  It also would make initially sorting your channels tons easier
 if you could try locking on streams and if they were encrypted then it
 just says "encrypted channel".  Anyway, I defer to the dev's whether to
 reopen this.

 So I connected to my sql database and said

 select channum,freqid,mplexid from channel where sourceid=1;

 to display the channel mapping to mplexid and

 select mplexid,frequency from dtv_multiplex;

 and then saw those mappings didn't align to the scan i did with
 hdhomerun_config or the tables I'd seen online.

 This command might be easier:
 select channel.freqid,dtv_multiplex.frequency FROM channel,dtv_multiplex
 WHERE channel.mplexid = dtv_multiplex.mplexid ORDER BY channel.freqid;
