The plugins are working fine now. I had to recompile them with the _new_
version of mythtv already installed.
I couldn't find how to restore the grabber functionality.
I defined xmltvid for the new IPTV channels as previously, but when I run
mythfilldatabase I get duplicate programs for this tuner and on the capture
card I have. Even though they have the same channum and callsign.
This causes the same show to be recorded twice, once for each source.
There's probably something new or that works differently on the IPTV tuner
than before. Can the grabber even be activated for this source?
