Then only thing that seems strange is this:

GetChannelData() failed because it could not find channel number 
'NextChannel 0' in DB for source '1'.
ChannelBase(2): IsTunable(Television,NextChannel 0) Failed to find 
channel in DB on input '1'
ChannelBase(2) Error: Setting start channel 'NextChannel 0' failed, and 
we failed to find any suitible channels on any input.

It's not clear if this is an error or not. After that there is this,
which seems correct (there is a channel 10 in the DB).

Channel(/dev/video0): SetChannelByString(10)

Any ideas?
