[mythtv-users] Can't Change Channel

Hi all,

  I'm using a Hauppauge PVR 250 (CX23416, iTVC16) on a Fedora Core 2
system. I'm running a stock kernel (from kernel.org) with
ivtv-0.1.10-pre2-ck112z and MythTV 0.16.

  Here's my problem: I can't change channels when I go to
"mythfrontend -> WatchTV".

  Now, I've added in Channels 3, 4, and 5; with settings

Channel Name: 3/4/5
Channel Number: 3/4/5
Video Source: Cable/Cable/Cable
TV Format: default/default/default
Rank: 0/0/0
Icon: none/none/none
Rest: blank/blank/blank
Frequency Id: blank/blank/blank

  Now, for some reason, only channel 4 shows up, and when I tell
MythTV to go to channel 3 and 5, it still shows channel 4 (after a
slight delay).

  The only abnormal thing about my setup is that since the machine is
offline, "mythfilldatabase" always fails; but I don't know if this is
related to it or not.

  Any insight/suggestion would be useful.
