[mythtv-users] Debian Etch: Can't retrieve channel lineup from SD

I have been trying to upgrade my mythtv system to use the new SD
service. I upgraded to 0.20.2 from debian-multimedia (I am using Etch)
yesterday and tried to recreate the video sources: one for QAM local
channels and one for Comcast Digital Cable (using a external
set-top-box connected via S-Video to my DViCO Fusion HDTV RT Gold).
The only problem I have is that no matter what I do, I cannot add the
comcast channels to the database. I tried "fetch channels from listing
source" and
mythfilldatabase --do--channel-updates and everything I can imagine
(including deleting capture card, video sources ...). The QAM channels
can be added when I do a scan, but I obviously cannot do a scan for
the comcast ones on the S-Video input.

My account with SD works without any problem, it will connect and
fetch program data. Any help is greatly appreciated.
