I had a similar experience while running command line utilities.
Not cetain what the problem was/is, but I have a separated and
dedicated master backend with a remote frontend. The remote
frontend shows the blank grabbers which confused me for a long time.
If I ran mythfrontend on the master backend machine instead, I suddenly
saw the grabbers in the setup configuration. At least of for movies
and TV. Mine is a (very) recently upgraded (from 0.24-fixes) install
run on the master backend seemed to work after I'd saved the grabber
config in the frontend. I presume the rest works?
Bug? Expected behaviour?
Maybe someone else has a better explanation?
Hope this helps.
