Thank you for your reply :)

I've done this:

In Mythbuntu: Applications -> System -> MythTV Backend setup, then

3. Video sources -> choose my source called "digital_cable"

Then "Fetching lineups from schedulesdirect" with a progress bar


Video Source Setup -> Listings grabber: North America (SchedulesDirect.org)

Then my userid and password. Then I do "Retrieve lineups"

Then I select the lineup, which is called Knology_CableDigital-Digital,
etc. (This cable service has analog channels 2-99 and digital channels 100
and up. I record channels 2-99 with the PVR-150.)

"Perform EIT scan" unchecked.

Channel frequency table: us-cable

Then "Finish"


4. Input Connections -> "[MPEG : /dev/video0] (Tuner 1) -> digital_cable"

This goes to a page called "Connect source to input" Then:

Input: Tuner 1

Video source: digital_cable

Then I select "Fetch channels from listings source" and hit enter

This appears to do nothing, or at least there's no visual feedback that
it's working. Wait a while, then "Next >". Then "Finish".

Exit the backend setup; this runs mythfilldatabase. Go into mythweb ->
Backend status; gives this: "Last mythfilldatabase run started on
2011-11-05 09:59:52 and ended on 2011-11-05 10:00:08. mythfilldatabase ran,
but did not insert any new data into the Guide for 2 of 2 sources..."

Then I look at the listings in mythweb, and I see "16 (MTV)" while the
schedulesdirect website for my video source shows "16 CNN", which is


Again, I'm sure it's something stupid that I'm missing, but I can't quite
figure out what :)
