As mentioned in my earlier post, the channel scan says it is scanning terrestrial vsb-8 ATSC channels and the appear to have the correct station IDs for my local channels.
Another thing I just found was the following in the frontend log when I try and watch TV in MythTV.
2011-05-05 16:18:07.214 NVP(1): Prebuffer wait timed out 770 times.
2011-05-05 16:18:07.215 NVP(1), Error: Timed out waiting for prebuffering too long. Exiting..
2011-05-05 16:18:07.215 NVP(1), Error: Video frame buffering failed too many times.
2011-05-05 16:18:08.546 NVP(1): Prebuffer wait timed out 780 times.
2011-05-05 16:18:08.546 NVP(1), Error: Timed out waiting for prebuffering too long. Exiting..
2011-05-05 16:18:08.546 NVP(1), Error: Video frame buffering failed too many times.
These messages just pump out every second while I have the frontend in watch TV mode. Still a black/blank screen.
