Hmm, this would indicate that it doesn't think it has found all the
channels on that transport. In HandleDVBDBInsertion(), waitingForTables
gets set to false once all the tables have been found, this message
should only be printed if we timeout before this variable is set.

But perhaps this isn't an error?

Is this only printed for transports where the MythTV scan does not
insert any channels?

You should be able to scroll that window. The console message will provide
a little more info, but it is basically telling you that there are some
bogus dtv_multiplex entries and you should probably delete them and do a
full scan to get less bogus ones.

This happens when it can't find any DVB/ATSC tables, but there are
programs listed in the MPEG PAT table. This is used to detect the
raw MPEG programs sent by most cable providers in the US. Have you
tried tuning to one of these channels?

This may be related to that "Found channel..." message you saw earlier,
try deleting all the transports and starting over.
