The symptoms are mostly two:
- your problem with no channels imported from a working
channels.confcreated by dvbscan
- you manage to import the channels, but after that the frontend claims with
an "no channel lock" error
I can't assure this is a bug because personally I only tried with
precompiled packages (in order, debian-multimedia, knoppmyth with myth 0.20,
mythbuntu), but other guys at the forum where I write (htpcpoint.it, only in
italian sorry) recompiled mythtv from the source and the  "bug" is always
Now I've a 0.20 with all the dvb channels correctly imported; the main
workaround we found are related with mythtv upgrade after a correct channels
import (install myth 0.18/0.19, scan the channels, upgrade to 0.20).
I did successfully with knoppmyth. If you want debian packages for 0.19 from
debian-multimedia, I should have kept a copy of deb files.
