How do you manually enter a MAC address? Do you mean choosing "enter a
static IP address" in the "Available Devices" menu and then entering a
MAC address in the field where one would normally enter an IP address?
If you actually mean this then I did not try this method to configure a
HDHomeRun in Myth since I wasn't even aware that this was possible (and
there isn't a "use a MAC address" option that I can see).
If you mean that you choose a device like "10194703-1" from the
"Available Devices" menu then you are using an auto-discovered device,
and that is the configuration that works in 0.24. The pre-populated
"10194703-1" entry in the "Available Devices" refers to a device ID, not
to a MAC address, although the "0194703" in the ID do coincide with the
last 3 octects of the HDHR MAC address.
