Since you've mentioned it, I've been missing muxes  C+D (Dave, Sky 3 
etc) recently with similar symptoms but I figured it was my own fault 
since I've been messing about with the DB a lot recently.  I have no 
problems tuning into the missing channels using Kaffeine.  I'm planning 
a move to 0.22 quite soon so haven't spent too much time trying to 
figure it out.
