Hi, I attempted to reply with the log of mythtv-setup as an attachment
but it is too big and it might never make it.

In any case, the log did not show anything that would point me in the
right direction, however, I found out something else that is

I tried doing a "Full Scan" over "Broadcast" frequencies using
"Terrestrial (8-V<somthing>)" and mythtv-setup managed to find two
channels. Once is found them and added them, the only thing that it
would display is:

"Updating <call sign> 11-1 to 11.2 for ATSC channel <num>" 

where <num> was everything from 2 to 82.

This leads me to the idea that mythtv-setup can find my OTA channels
but I am not setting something up correctly.

I am using a OTA antenna and scandvb find about 40 different channels
(which I can play with mplayer dvb://). I am thinking that for some
reason, mythtv-setup only uses one frequency for the scan.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am so close!!
