No, I haven't messed with any channel script settings. I'm also using
an internal pci tuner, which makes it even more odd. It happens with
the Ubuntu feisty version (from January) and the latest snapshot from
0.20-fixes (from the mythbuntu repository). Could it be the packages
somehow? I guess the next thing is to try compiling from source...
