Are you in Sacramento and using Surewest by any chance? We just got
their fiber TV service.  I have their little Amino box hooked to the
Myth box and using an IR blaster.  I'd be very interested to learn more
if you get your setup working right.  If you are getting direct access
to their MPEG stream, I think the quality would be much better than
going through my PVR-150.

Subject: [mythtv-users] fiberoptic IPTV recording on mythtv

I recently got fiberoptic cable to my home with telephone, internet and
TV though IPTV multicasting.  It is not Verizon it is a local city
sponsored company.  I want to use the "CRC IP Network Recorder" to tune
in the IPTV signals directly off the network instead of having to use an
IR blaster to control the cable box etc. 

I found some info that allowed me to set up the CRC IP Recorder tuner(s)
for the correct ip multicast address/port.  And now if I tune my cable
box to a channel I can then watch that channel on mythtv.  My cable box
and my mythtv box are not wired together.  I am definitely decoding the
signal off the network.  This is good, but I can't change channels and
the data for the program guide is not there.  

The CRC IP recorder option in mythtv is setup so I have to define one
tuner for each channel.  When I hit watch TV in mythtv it automatically
switches to the tuner with the highest priority.  If my cable box is not
set to that channel then mythtv cant get the multicast stream and it
fails so I can only get one channel. 

I don't understand how to set up the channel sources correctly.  Each
tuner only has one channel but the line up has all the channels listed.

Has anybody gotten the CRC IP Recorder to work with IPTV service?  I
think I am getting really close but I must be missing something to bring
it all together.
