[mythtv-users] Repeated attempts to tune after successful lock

     Been having a problem for a while now with my mythbuntu combined 

MythTV Version   : v0.24.1-85-ge16613a
MythTV Branch    : fixes/0.24
Network Protocol : 63
Library API      : 0.24.20110505-1
QT Version       : 4.7.2

     In live tv, quite frequently, the frontend tunes to a channel and 
gets a picture without issue but then a couple of seconds later I'll get 
the tuning dialog trying to tune again to the already tuned channel. 
Then the "you should have got a signal by now..." dialog pops up under 
the tuning dialog and the tuning dialog will eventually tune and 
disappear. This may seemingly pointless tuning may repeat a couple or 
more times.

     I'm wondering if my constant upgrading of the mythtv database from 
~0.12 over the years has led to this problem.

     I'm beginning to wonder if I should do a clean install after 
exporting my recordings and then import them or if there is some other 
better approach.

     Has anyone seen a similar issue ?

     Any thoughts hugely appreciated.
