Not without details...
What standard (i.e. NTSC/PAL B/...)? What frequency tables are you
using (i.e. us-cable, us-cable-hrc, us-cable-irc)? What channel can you
Most likely, you've specified a tuner type and it's not correct or you
are one of the unlucky people to get a tuner for which there's no
definition in the Linux kernel... See
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/166976#166976 . If
that's your problem (whether your tuner is the same as his or
different), my offer to Dan is extended to you, also--get me a data
sheet and I'll write you a tuner definition.
