[mythtv-users] Channel scan and import fails

Hi all,

Last night I got around to finally try out Mythbuntu 10.10.
I did a clean installation, Hardware is basically an ASUS M3N78 Pro with
a GeForce 8300 onboard-GPU and an Haupauge HVR-4000.

Installation finds the correct NVIDIA driver and after I installed
linux-firmware-nonfree I got the Haupauge working with Kaffeine
(including Channel scan). I'm on DVB-S/S2

Now I'm trying to get a channel scan working in MythTV, but a "tuned"
full scan returns "Error parsing parameters" (I just used the defaults)
and trying to get an channels.conf from scan (dvb-apps) imported  fails
as well with "No channels found". Which log should I consult for more

How is the usual way to get DVB-S/S2 channels imported in the MythTV
database? Does anyone know how to export Kaffeines channels and import
it into MythTV (no, ~/.kde/share/apps/kaffeine/channels.dvb does not
exist, it contains a sqlite db and I did not find an export button from
Kaffeines GUI).

Any hint is appreciated
