Thanks for the explanations. Confusing as hell.

Maybe someone can help me as to what the correct syntax is for the
mythtv-setup --scan. I was basing it on this:


I can list the cardids with this:

mythtv-setup --scan atsc-vsb8-us
2018-04-03 11:28:40.404904 C  mythtv-setup version: fixes/29
[v29.1-60e40b352ab95a135ec2ab8f9f1ee93b4f9d245e] www.mythtv.org
2018-04-03 11:28:40.404933 C  Qt version: compile: 5.7.1, runtime: 5.7.1
You must enter a valid cardid to scan.
Valid cards:
    1: HDHOMERUN 1046A151-0
    2: HDHOMERUN 1046A151-0
    3: HDHOMERUN 1046A151-1
    4: HDHOMERUN 1046A151-1
    5: HDHOMERUN 104A8F21-0
    6: HDHOMERUN 104A8F21-0
    7: HDHOMERUN 104A8F21-1
    8: HDHOMERUN 104A8F21-1
    9: DVB /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0
   10: DVB /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0

But adding the cardid doens't work:

mythtv-setup --scan atsc-vsb8-us 1
Received '1' but unassociated arguments have not been enabled

...which is followed by the syntax help. I don't get it. What is that
looking for? That page seems to indicate that it wants an input name.
I know that cardinput is no longer used. I'm just not getting it.

Anyone have any ideas? This channel scanning has always scared the
shit out of me.
