I got Mythbuntu 8.04 working with a Pinnacle Pro Stock thanks to a lot of
help from James Crow and others. Everything was working except whenever I
tuned to channel 11_1, Myth froze with a black screen and CPU usage at 95%.
All the other channels worked. I thought I might have found a new bug as
channel 11_1 is really on physical channel 12, which is unusual. I deleted
all the channels and scanned again, same thing. All channels I tried except
11 worked. I tried changing the profile to CPU-- to see if that would help.
Then I tried to do an import of my channels.conf file that I created with
scan. That stuck at 0% so it didn't work. I deleted all the channels and
did a scan again. The scan looked fine.
But now, all channels I have tried give me a black screen and the front-end
goes to 95%. I have rebooted several times.
I deleted all the channels again and re-scanned. Again the scan looks fine
but when I watch TV, the screen shows the channel information but then goes
I recorded a show and it looks like it is recording fine. When I try and
watch it, black screen.
I can switch to another desktop so I know linux and the computer are not
All the channels I looked at with mplayer look fine so I know the tuner is
Anyone see this before and know what to do?
