Hi all,

After searching the archives and not finding a working solution to my
problem, here I am asking for help.
I'm running mythtv-0.25 on an OpenSUSE 12.2 system where both the backend
and the frontend reside.
Apart from the no program data problem the system seems to work fine
including all UI and setup functions.
mythfilldatabase seems to correctly retrieve the program/channel data, see
the log produced by
mythfilldatabase --dd-grab-all -v file,network --loglevel debug --logpath
and here is a backend startup:

I've changed the IP address of the machine several times, currently it is a
fixed IP address with correct DNS servers.
I just dropped the mythconverg mysql database and re-created it with:
mysql -u root -p < /usr/share/doc/packages/mythtv-0_25-docs/database/mc.sql
mysql -u root -p mythconverg
mysql> grant all on mythconverg.* to mythtv@"%" identified by "mythtv";
mysql> flush privileges;

Then I reconfigured the backend with mythtv-setup.
I've taken a look at several of the mythconverg tables (e.g. program) and
they seem to be populated with some program data.
mysql> select count(*) from program;
| count(*) |
|      413 |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

Still, Schedule>Program Guide shows "Unknown" and when changing channels I
get no program/listing info.
I simply don't see where the problem might be and any help would be
