Yep. /bin/true is in the channel change script entry in mythtv-setup.
That's what is confusing me about this, as I too would have thought that
the TV would display even without the channel changer setup.
The PVR definitely works, as I can display the PVR signal using vlc, but
it craps out when I try it from mythTV, even after power cycling both
the PC and the PVR.
I saw another post that indicated a similar problem due to a corrupt
database. I guess I could delete the database and re-initialise it.
