When you download your zap2it channel lineup in the Capture Card section of mythtv-setup, it should populate the channel table (I don't recall offhand what column 3 should be). You can get into the mysql database with "mysql -u mythtv -pmythtv mythconverg." Hope that helps.

This still leaves unanswered what you are supposed to use for a
None of the choices are particularly clear. I am presently trying using
'Mpeg capture card (Matrox G200..' etc. And that does not seem to work.
I now have the pcHDTV card installed and I have copied the kernel tveeprom
module into the 'updates' stream, replacing tveeprom-ivtv.
Dmesg seems to happy, except for the fact that the default frequency for
one of the radio tuners is set to 0.00...
ivtv-detect against the i2c bus seems ok...although it reports the PVR 500
units as MPEG against /dev/video0 and /dev/video1 and YUV against
/dev/video32 and /dev/video33, BUT it reports the pcHDTV as YUV against
Mythtv-setup seems to be happy with all of this, EXCEPT I still cannot
scan even if I use the Broadcast listing. Broadcast is coupled to the
pcHDTV card against /dev/video32 in prior pages of setup.
AND, if I so much as move the cursor selection into the Channel page
(without changing anything), the mythtv-setup starts throwing the
"QMYSQLReport::data: column 3 is out of range"
Up to that point, mythbackend seems quite happy, and if I exit
mythtv-setup are setting the input connections, I can run mythfilldatabase
without problem... but merely touching the Channel screen causes an error.
I still cannot scan in the Channel screen even when I have selected the
Using mythfrontend to watch live TV times out trying to get signal....Very
discouraged at this state of affairs, as I know that the hardware does
Next step will have to be a compile and install of mythtv...this setup was
a 'yum' job and I now doubt that the configure is quite right.
