I've found the issue, you can configure the compile in such a way that 
HDHR dependencies are not met. If you enable hdhr, but disable crciprec, 
iptv, freebox and dbox2, then you cannot setup the HDHR successfully. It 
will compile, but you cannot do proper channel scans, which is what I 
ran into.

I guess it's not really a bug, since it is an 'expert configuration', 
but perhaps there should be a dependency on iptv and crciprec for 
hdhomerun? Or at the least a note in configure --help that there is a 

Just my observation, thanks for the help!
