You shouldn't need to change anything.  The only configurable options
are the following environment variables:

MYTHMHEG=noice # Set this to _disable_ interaction channel
MYTHMHEG_PROXY="http://yourproxy" # Setup an MHEG http proxy

Ensure that you've got the latest patch, which was last updated on the
6th September.

It would be useful to enable MHEG log output to see what's going on.
Append "-v mheg" to your mythfrontend command line and tune to BBC1.
Wait for up to 60 seconds for the red button logo.  Post the log here
and I'll see if I can spot a problem.  Also could you report the output
of `qmake -v`
