Thanka for your interest Simon,
btw, which dvb type are you using? (cable/terrestrial/satellite)

well, very often when you find the cause of a bug you will think that was a
stupid mistake =)

In the chanMetadata::updateDatabase function at metadata.cpp, you'll see
cout/cerr lines that tells you which sqlo statements are being executed, be
sure first that you get those outputs while updating, looking to those
statements we also might be able to diagnose what was wrong with the update,
if it's on the channel table or channel_dvb table, etc...

Umm, I assume that you're using DVB-s, with analog, is the ony preview that
is currently present. A lot to do here... TuneToDVBs at channelsplayer.cpp
is where the commands are being executed, and with the latest version of
mythchannels I do think that there is alredy some debug messages telling you
which commands are being executed, so with cut&paste you can test manually
their syntax.
