On the channel you're changing too, are there definately both an audio
and a video pid assigned? I get this as some channels get assigned ids
of 0 depoending on the time of day you scanned the channel
I'm hoping to write a patch next week that flags a channel as
'broadcasting' between certain hours, so the channel will be skipped/a
popup displayed if its switched to outside of this time...its
certainly a pain when you're channel hopping to land on oneo f these

When I run mythbackend on one PC and mythfrontend on another PC (using the Knoppmyth frontend bootable CD) everything works perfectly and I can change between all the Freeview channels with no problems.

No interesting messages appear in the mythbackend or mythfrontend terminals - for example just tested this and the last message to appear in mythbackend was 'DVB#0 Successfully tuned to channel 2'!
