Thanks in advance. I'm confused.
I've brought up my Myth backend server (3 times now?) and tried to get
the HDHR connected to SchedulesDirect and displaying a channel
listing. I've had a lot of problems. Finally I found this Wiki page:
which lists these steps:
Myth Setup Ordering
1. Within mythtv-setup create the tuner cards and grabbers but
don't do the "connections" yet
2. run scte65scan as described below
3. fill the database with the results
4. Go back to mythtv-setup and create the connections and set the
starting channel to a valid channel
I assume by 'grabbers' it means filling in the Video Source settings
for SchedulesDirect? If that's not correct please let me know.
OK - so steps 1-3 went OK except for the command to populate the
mythconverg database which I had to make mode complete
mark at MacMini:~$ mysql -u mythtv -p mythconverg <vct.sql
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'mythtv'@'localhost' (using

So it worked (I think) but required I specify the host even though I'm
on the host.
Now, my question is about step 4. It says "Go back to mythtv-setup and
create the connections and set the starting channel to a valid
channel". When I try to do that it won't let me change the starting
channel: setting. It currently says 'Please add channels to this
Am I supposed to run either 'Scan for channels' of 'Fetch Channels
from listing source' at this point?
