Yes, that didn't help.  I did specify minimal updates however...any
reason that should be an issue?  I did see it update that channel.

By the way, since my first email I stopped the backend and tried
grabbing some raw TS data from that channel using the getatsc program
that came with the HD-5500 and i can produce an mpeg file that plays
in mplayer, so I'm stumped as to why myth is having an issue with it.
