MythTV generates several bogus channels while using HDHomeRun

Bug Description

Binary package hint: mythtv

I have 112 channels on my cable. They are detected properly by the HDHomeRun config and config-gui. MythTV-Setup is seeing 62 new channels on each detection of a channel. This is the same as my total number of standard definition channels which I receive.

When the scan is finished I see the following
Found 46 new non-conflicting SCTE channel(s).
Found 3 new non-conflicting MPEG channel(s).
Found 395 new conflicting DVB channel(s)
Found 39 new conflicting SCTE channel(s)

Let me break this down
Found 46 Music Stations
Found 3 High Definition Channels
Found 395 channels, of which 13 are valid channels (Analog #1-#12) mixed in amongst 282 duplicate and invalid channels, which makes them impossible to identify.
Found 39 Standard Definition channels to which I have to manually assign channel numbers.

I should have 62 stations and 46 music channels. Somewhere amongst the 395 new conflicting DVB channels are my channels 1-12.

I have started the following thread on

Please help!

I should add that my HDHomeRun channels are detected correctly on Linux and Mac platforms, using other applications, but not MythTV on Linux. I have not tested MythTV on Mac.

I meant to say that the HDHomeRun is running great on Linux and Windows platforms, but not MythTV.
