MythTv Tune Preset Tuner to Channel
« on: February 10, 2009, 04:03:01 am »
For about a week, MythTV worked excellent with my cable box and the USB-UIRT.  Then, whenever I started MythTV I would only get static.  When I plugged the cable directly into my pci tv tuner (Hauppauge PVR-150) I see that I am on channel 15.  Trying to change the channel only results in the cable box changing to the channel I selected.

Now, I know MythTV needs to be setup to "preset tuner to channel".  I have this set to my channel (3) and I even have the "starting channel" set to 3.

Does anyone have any experience with this or suggestions?

For anyone else that runs into a similar situation, see this:  http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Using_an_IR_Blaster_with_MythTV specifically the "Configuring Myth Backend" section.

I needed to open up MythTV Backend Setup to see how my card(s) were named, but this worked for me:

ivtv-tune -c 3 -d /dev/video0


I've updated the wiki:  http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/Control_a_TV_or_cable/satellite_box  to add the section.
