If with "channel lineup" you mean I did a mythfilldatabase (yes, my
English is less than perfect ...) then the answer is yes. I did a
"mythfilldatabase --manual" first, than ran mythfilldatabase without
arguments. "mythfilldatabase --manual" failed to fill in the xmltv id,
so the next call to mythfilldatabase generated the same channels once
anew. Solved that in tha database manually.
So, the channels are in the database allright, as are the program
details from the available channels a week ahead. The channel info is
shown on the screen whenever I try to change channel, but then nothing
If I understood you wrong, my apologies, and maybe you want to explain
what you meant.
