i have 2 2 different tuners; DVB-S2, and DVB-T. they obviously have
their own listings, and thus run on different sources in mythtv-setup.

at the moment, i have the DVB-S2 card away for RMA, so i only have an
active DVB-T tuner
to save me doing a full rescan when the card returns, i've simply
removed the missing card from the Tuner Card menu in mythtv-setup, and
left the listings source alone.

i've ran a channel script taken from the mythtv wiki that will rename
similar channels to the same, and also correctly change their channel
this means i have multiple BBC One signals available on channel 101 -
both from the DVB-S2 and DVB-T tuners.

from what i understand this should work fine and is a 'supported' setup.

It's now been 8 days and so the EIT DVB-S2 data has expired and is no
longer showing any shows data in the 'Listings' page of mythweb.
HOWEVER, if i go into the 'Upcoming Recordings', i see the correct
ammount of upcoming recordings, and shows are being recorded as
also, the DVB-T only channels are correctly displaying up-to-date EIT data.

it's asif mythweb listings has taken the DVB-S2 card as the master EIT
source for channels available on both tuners, and dispite having valid
EIT data from the DVB-T card, it's not actually showing it in the

i hope i've explained this clearly!
any ideas?
