I know what you mean. I recall it taking a few attempts to get things
working in the first place, so making any change was with a certain
amount of apprehension.
I too went back to basics - deleted all sources, deleted all cards,
ripped out all cached information from the grabber (I'm using the
uk_rt grabber), and built it up again. The trick I think was manually
updating the channel/grabber info tables first.
It's still an awesome package though, looking forward to getting hold
of a front end to put under my telly - at the moment only my laptop
has the horsepower for it.
