Hi Stephen,

Not sure why it's doing that actually, when I set this up the scanning code
did list the radio channels but listed them as ignored because they were
radio streams. I used the same procedure that was described in the list a
couple of days ago, by specifying the transport stream then doing a "Scan of
existing transports" and chose the correct transport stream.

I'm not at home at the moment and am in the Wollongong area but if you still
want the channel dump I can send it through. :)

I have mythtv basically working, but scanning for the ABC and SBS
channels does not work. All the commercial channels are there (WIN,
SC10, Prime). I'm suspecting that it's because of the DiG and SBS DVB
radio stations freaking out the scanning code (I compiled the 0.18.1
source tarballs) . Has anyone entered these in by hand and can send me
a DB dump?


PS - It's interesting to see that it uses less CPU when displayhing
than Xine. The high-def channels seem to use about 40% (with XvMC on
an Nvidia 5200 with an Athlon XP 2600+) where Xine would use about 60%
and stutter.
