I guess I might be having the same issue with 0.22RC2. After the upgrade
from 0.21something, EIT data was not migrated, and not received, either.
So I deleted all channels, created a new channels.conf, imported it, but
no change. Reading your hint, yesterday evening I deleted all channels and
rescanned the existing transports. Still, until now no EIT data was
received. So I wanted to do a full scan. But when I enter, for Astra 19.2
E, 12551500 (Frequency), vertical and 22000000 as symbol rate, leaving the
rest at auto, I just get an error message:

Channel could not be opened

However, there are no error messages in my mythbackend.log.

How did you do "a real scan" with mythtv?

Thanks, Christian
