I really need to drink less coffee. Problems appear to be solved.
Removed all tuner hardware except the LifeView :) Still couldn't find
any channels when scanning in MythTV, however Kaffeine did.
Created a channels.conf file using scan, which picked up quite a few
channels and imported it into mythtv. Worked a treat - can view and
change channels perfectly with the LifeView now.
- Just using a set of cheap rabbit ears for Antenna, However I am close
to the transmitter and in line of sight. Not expecting miracles.
- This device has *much* better reception than the WinFast 1000-T I was
using, it reports a signal strenght of 60 - 70% where the WinFast was
only getting 20% (Same Aerial).
- Picture is very steady, no artifacts or droputs
- Overall very happy with it now.
