Yes, I have. When I did that in MythTV the scanner was seeing lots of signal
strength throughout the scan, but in every case it reported "No Signal". I
was under the impression that the use of tv_grab_uk_rt would do this. Was I
incorrect? If so, what is the program within Myth that is therefore not
working? And where does it put its log, so that I can see where it may be
going wrong?
