Thomas,

what makes you think your problem is the same as mine?

I monitored the channel today and discovered that it worked up until 
6pm. I can only assume the channel starts broadcasting something at this 
time that mythtv doesn't like. I'd really like to hear from any UK users 
to hear whether they can watch Channel 4 or not.

This seems to be all I get in the log when I try to watch it after 6pm:
