Then I'm lost as to further diagnosis. Since the hdhr is a standalone
unit, using udp there is little additional code needed in myth to get a
unit working. It should *just work*....Getting different channels on
each scan sounds more like an antenna problem. Have you tried an amp on
the antenna? I needed one to get the signal high enough to work
properly. Try it without any splitters in the feed first.
