[mythtv-users] hdhomerun scan produces pound signs

With the new DTV transition, I figured I needed to rescan for current  
digital channels using one of my HDHomeRuns.  What happens now is that  
all the channels come out with pound sign separators, ie. 7#1, 13#2.   
I saw a message way back from 2008 on this list saying I should  
increase my tuning timeout, which I did (from 3 to 6 seconds) but that  
didn't seem to help.

Any other ideas that might help?  For what it's worth, I'm in southern  
california and mythtvfrontend --version shows this:

MythTV Version   : exported
MythTV Branch    : tags/release-0-21
Library API      : 0.21.20080304-1
Network Protocol : 40
Options compiled in:
  linux release using_oss using_alsa using_backend using_dbox2  
using_dvb using_frontend using_hdhomerun using_iptv using_ivtv

using_xv using_xvmc using_xvmcw using_xvmc_vld using_bindings_perl  
using_bindings_python using_opengl using_ffmpeg_threads using_live

and I'm using 3 HDHomerun's for a total of 6 tuners (all hdhomeruns  
are on a separate Gigabit network).
