Step 4: The Scan for Channels
In order to scan DVB-C with MythTV, you need to give it an initial transponder in a tuned scan. The data you need to enter is: frequency, polarity, symbol rate and modulation. The information can be obtained from your operator. (Should it not be easily available it can also be obtained from an initial tuning file or a channels.conf for your location.)
There is only one simple solution for these problems: Talk to your cable provider they need to fix it!
- #7486, Some cable operators don't mark the correct tuning tables in their networks active. The ticket has a patch that allows selecting the correct tables.
- Channel tuning broken with DVB-C, Some cable operators just deliver the tuning tables straight from a satelite feed and are unwilling to fix the problem.
