I still need help on this from someone.
1) Mythbuntu 8.04
3) OTA reception
4) "Use quick tune" set to "Always" (on Input Connections menu).
Please run a quick (updated) test and let me know the result.
While a show is being recorded (not live TV) please run these two commands
and note the output:
1) hdhomerun_config FFFFFFFF get /tuner0/debug
2) hdhomerun_config FFFFFFFF get /tuner0/program
Background: There is a bug in MythTV and the work around given to me by
Silicon Dust doesn't work on my system. I am trying to isolate the problem.
I get the correct result in live TV so pretty sure the HDHR is ok. Non
Mythbuntu users report the correct result so what I am looking for is this
result on a system similar to mine to see if my install is broken, or if it
is a Mythbuntu bug.
Thanks for helping.
