Hi all,
sorry for my english
i am trying to update my mythbox to version 0.24

The problem is that i cant watch liveTV, in the logs i see something very weird: it found the analog tuner and a dummy cards, but mythtv use the dummy card!!

i never add a dummy card, of curse i tryed to uninstall / re-install the tunner card in mythtv-setup but the problem remain. I even buy another tunner card whit the same result...
The cards are analog, v4l whit the module saa7134 (the last one i buy is Encore ENLTV-FM 3)

In the frontend log i can see this:
the V4L card has a "*" and it say DISCONTINUOUS

are the analog tunner not supported anymore? i have downloaded the git source of v4l and install it, same result

version: fixes/0.24 [v0.24-243-g9ba3ece] www.mythtv.org
os: fresh install  of mythbuntu 11.04

this is a the last lines from the front end log:

LiveTVChain has 2 entries
   DUMMY: 1010 (23:31:43 to 23:31:44)
*    V4L: 1010 (23:31:44 to 00:00:00) discontinuous
