It is not an error. SCTE65 is an as-yet-unsupported-in-MythTV
out-of-band channel metadata encoding standard. Therefore, #6867 is a
feature request without a patch.
Without a patch, it's a feature that will be added to MythTV when a
developer with access to such encoding and with the time to write the
code to support it gets around to doing so. With a patch, it would
likely get included in MythTV trunk sooner.
