Can you try scanning for channels instead?
The "channels.conf" import has always been broken in MythTV.
The standard dvbtools "channels.conf" files don't contain the
needed information and we don't try to fetch that information
after the import. There is a ticket for this #2316, but fixing
this is not on my top ten bugs to fix list..
FYI There apparently is some external scanning program which
gets the required info, at least in DVB countries, but we don't
read the extra fields. Also there was some talk in the DVB
mailing list about adding the fields needed for reliable tuning
to the channel scanner output a couple months ago. I don't know
if anyone is actually working on the fix though.
