[mythtv-users] MythTV's built-in DVB EPG grabber died

After installing MythTV 0.18 I enabled the DVB EPG (via the check-box in 
the channel configuration). This worked brilliantly for a couple of 
weeks and then for some reason it just stopped working. Since then I've 
tried numerous things to get this working again.

I've tried:

- Un-checking/re-checking the over-the-air EPG option
- Re-scanning for channels (using existing config)
- Wiping out all channel info (at start of mythtv-setup) and then doing 
a full re-scan
- Running the mysql check utils to see if there was any database corruption

None of these things did any good.

Are there any dependencies that I should know about? I'm in a marginal 
signal area so can't receive *all* UK DVB channels, but I can get all of 
the important ones perfectly. Watching TV through this Myth box works fine.

I've been unable to find any documentation on the built-in EPG grabber, 
and as I had it working (after doing nother special at all) I really 
don't know what to try!

Any help greatly appreciated!

Current configuration:

- Gentoo Linux
- MythTV 0.18.1-r2
- Most MythTV plugins, all current versions
- 2 x Nebula DigiTV DVB PCI cards
