I haven't dared to rescan my mythtv channels in years. I tried once
and it didn't quite work, mythtv finds nothing from welho HTV cable. I
even made a bug report at the time, and it got fixed, but nowadays I
hear people not getting channels tuned again. So it might be that it's
still (or again) broken.
What you can do, you can tune one channel manually. Once you find a
channel, you do rescan from existing transports. The scan from
existing transports works, the first time scan for transports seems to
fail. You get frequencies for HTV here:
http://dvb.swelcom.fi/cable.php , I don't know in which network you
are in so you need to find your settings from your provider.
I think last time I retuned, I had to toggle manually the settings for
FEC and QAM values, the automatic ones did not work.
Similar info for the national terrestial broadcast the is here:
But don't give up, once you get it tuned once to find the transports,
you are safe. I've had my mythtv more or less working for years now.
If you use HTV cable, I can send you the transports table for mythtv,
that would get you going. You will need to set up channel icons and
xmltv fields to get EPG once you are done with tuning. For that there
is a simple script in
