[mythtv-users] No reception or EIT for Channel 5 in Essex

To add a spanner into the works, if I plug the aerial straight into
the TV with the built in digital tuner, bypassing the Myth box the TV
can receive channel 5 and all the other channels that I can't receive
when the signal goes via the Myth box.  The TV also picks up the EIT
data as well.

So the problem happens when I plug the aerial into the Myth box.
