[mythtv-users] Mythfilldatabase, new HdHr Quatro box, and EPG

I missed the announcements when my local broadcasters decided to change 
frequencies and required everyone to re-scan.  I thought my HDHR-Connect 
box stopped working, so I bought a new HDHR-Quatro (four tuners).

The installation went pretty well.  I deleted the existing tuners and 
created four new ones for the Quatro box (thanks Klaas for the 
instructions). The channel scan worked fine and all four tuners are 
working better than expected; some of the hard to get channels are 
working really well.

However, the program guide is unpopulated ("Unknown(Unknown)" for all 
the new tuner channels.  I also have an Hauppauge HD-PVR for the cable 
box and those channels are fine.  I've run mythfilldatabase several 
times; do I have a myth-setup issue, or maybe something with 


PS - After the channel scan, I checked the channel editor and all looked 
fine.  I exited and re-entered mythtv-setup and re-checked the channel 
editor.  Filtering for each of the Quatro antenna inputs, it shows all 
the cable-tv channels mixed into the antenna channels.  Example: if I   
set the "Video Sources" filter to "All", it shows five cable TV "Video 
On Demand" channels (HD-PVR, Ant-1. Ant-2, Ant-3. Ant-4).  I assume this 
is a display issue, but ??

PS - I temporarily turned on EIT and it mostly filled in the guide.

PS - I reported the frequency change to Schedules-Direct and asked if 
any updates were needed on their end; waiting for response.
