Thanks for your advice. But my point is that all other devices work with
USALS just the way it is alligned right now. Only mythtv deviates from
the scale. If all other programs and receivers work fine, what's wrong
with MythTV ?

Even when I say turn to 0 MythTV turns to -2 (2 degrees West) this is
wrong!
