Being offline might be your problem. For me (using .15 still), whenever
I have no program data for the current day (happens frequently when
Mythfilldatabase first deletes the days data then the download fails), I
can't change channels. Appears if there is no program data, it can't
change. I fix the issue by running mythfilldatabase and repopulating
the program data. Sometimes I have to restart mythbackend before it
works again. If you're offline, you might want to try manually
inserting data if you're comfortable with sql or else finding an
internet connection for that machine.
