[mythtv-users] MythTV 0.24.1, Ubuntu 11.04 and MHEG on Freeview UK

I am no longer getting the 'Press the Red Button' logo on the BBC News 24 
channel. When I press the 'red button' on my remote all I get in the logs is 
'Adding MHEG key MENURED:100:1' but nothing happens on screen. I am in the 
Sandy Heath transmitter area, and have had to do 2 recent retunes, but my 
TV's built in Freeview still shows the 'red button' logo. I have checked my 
settings and I have 'Interactive TV' checked in MythTV settings.

I compile MythTV myself from source and had no problem on the previous 
version of Ubuntu (installed as minimal install). I have also tried to patch 
the MythTV 0.24.1 source using the BBC iPlayer MHEG patch 
(http://www.softsystem.co.uk/download/mythtv/iplayer.diff) but it fails to 
patch the source and just says hunk failed and saving rejects.

I am using a Hauppauge Nova-T 500 and a PCTV Nanostick T2 290e and there is 
no 'red button' on either tuner.

All help appreciated,
