I would have sworn I had reported back on this, but as it seems I haven't.

Deleting all video sources and defining them anew did the trick. The 
DVB-T scan was weired though, with lots of collisions and I ended up 
with a partial list of channels. But that seems fixable.

Live-TV /and/ recording do both work; mythfilldatabase is a lot faster 
now than before and things look good again. Thanks to all who helped.

Having said live-tv works, starting with 0.24-fixes, it seems like the 
receptions is much worse than before, and may channels don't tune in 
anymore, or only at times. I can't believe there's a relation to mythtv, 
but has anyone else observed this?

Thanks again
