OK, you did post it to the mythtv-users list ( 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/215714#215714 ).  
And, you did so 4 hours before posting to the mythtv-dev list ( 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/215723#215723 ).  Note, 
however, that posting to the dev list because you didn't get any 
responses on the users list is almost never the right approach.  And, 
waiting 4 hours to determine that you didn't get any posts is never the 
right approach (remember, not everyone is sitting at their mail client 
when you are ;).

The right approach is to do more research using the HOWTO ( 
http://mythtv.org/modules.php?name=MythInstall ), the wiki ( 
http://wiki.mythtv.org/ ), the mailing list archives ( 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/ ), and your favorite 
search engine (i.e. http://www.google.com/ ) and finding a way to better 
describe the problem, give more information, describe attempted fixes 
and their results, or, even better, to solve the problem yourself.
