No dice here.  At least on version .20.  I do get a log message that
it can't find the IP address, followed immediately by one that says it
can find it via "ffffffff".  I too have the latest firmware, no
trouble viewing it via Windows, no trouble using the linux
hdhomerun_config tool either.  Same symptom, though -- nothing shows
after a scan.

I started down the path of re-syncing the libhdhomerun code, but there
were quite a few changes, and they seem fairly "cosmetic" -- I don't
think they fundamentally alter the way the device actually works, but
I haven't finished yet.

Haven't taken the SVN or channel-scan-branch plunge yet, but doesn't
seem like SVN will buy me much right now.
