This message is a prelude to a bug report I'd like to file, but I wanted
to get someone else to verify that this behavior exists before acting
On my setup, I have a master backend with two PVR250 cards and a slave
with one PVR250.
When I went to remove the slave's card, I ran mythtv-setup, went into
capture cards, saw that the one slave backend card was listed (and
nothing else). I selected "Delete all capture cards" and approved the
I then went into the frontend and selected "Watch TV" and it kicked me
out immediately with this error (it's a red-herring.. see below):

Perhaps you have forgotten to bind video
sources to your card's inputs?

Please verify channel "3" in the "mythtv-setup" Channel Editor.

Most likely, your DefaultTVChannel setting is wrong.

I restarted the master backend, and saw this:

Perhaps you should read the installation instructions?

Both systems are running Gentoo 2006.0, kernel 2.6.16 and ivtv 0.6.2.
Just a guess, but it looks like a sql query is incorrectly configured to
select all cards without a WHERE clause, and is deleting all cards, not
just for the current system.
Cheers (and GREAT work by the way.. not enough people say that when they
gripe about bugs, which exist in any software),
