Just to bring this to partial closure... I opened a ticket (3546)
related to this issue. After the ticket was opened, DanielK was kind
enough to look into it and discovered a bug in the way myth handles
scanning in this particular situation. The situation being a rare one
where the scan results in a subchannel with stream info and another
subchannel without tied to the same frequency.
As I read this, I'm probably not doing the best job in explaining it.
Apparently, myth assumes all subchannels on a particular frequency share
the same tuning method. That assumption is what causes the tuning to
fail on the second subchannel in my case. Apparently this is very rare.
To make a long story short, DanielK gives a brief manual approach in
the text of the ticket. This approach worked for me, however, it does
require some database adjustments.
Take a look at the ticket for more accurate info. Sorry if I killed the
