[mythtv] DVB tuning problems - Can someone point me in the right direction ?

I don't want to  put in a ticket for this until I have more information but
I really don't know where to look to get it. My setup uses a rotor with a
Twinhan card. I've had HUGE difficulty consistently changing channels. I've
added code to retune every few seconds until the correct PMT is found,
however, many times it doesn't do any good. I run the backend with -v
channel,record,siparser and if I were to believe MythTV I would conclude
that the card just isn't tuning. However, at those times if I run dvbsnoop I
can see a valid PAT for the transponder I'm tuning to. If this were the case
I would expect MythTV's siparser to show me that PAT - even if it were


Where should I look further to resolve this? At this point I'm pulling out
my hair. I've been working on getting this setup functional for months.


Thanks, Mark.
