Comment 32 for bug 931134

I seem to have the same/a similar problem. I am also running 12.04 (originally installed as an alpha). With the latest me-tv from the PPA:
$ rm -rf .local/share/me-tv/

If it's at all relevant, I have also been having problems with the gnome-dvb-* apps: they forget my device group every time i reboot. I don't know whether they might be stuffing up me-tv (whether gnome-dvb-daemon is or isn't running does not seem to change me-tv's output above).
