It is not an error.  SCTE65 is an as-yet-unsupported-in-MythTV 
out-of-band channel metadata encoding standard.  Therefore, #6867 is a 
feature request without a patch.


Without a patch, it's a feature that will be added to MythTV when a 
developer with access to such encoding and with the time to write the 
code to support it gets around to doing so.  With a patch, it would 
likely get included in MythTV trunk sooner.
