Mythtv 30 with HomeRun - most programmes not showing.

Hi - I have installed MythTV 30 onto Lubuntu 18.04, and have installed the hdhomerun_config utilities.

When I run hdhomerun_config <deviceid> 0 or hdhomerun_config <deviceid> 1, all the channels available. When I go into mythtv-setup, add a Capture Card, add a video source, add an input connection, then scan for channels, I get 9 tv programmes detected, all from the same channel. The rest do not show up.

My old mythtv box, which I think is 0.29, picks up all the channels. This machine was turned off while I tried to get the new one running.

Anyway - spent a lot of time trying to figure it out but ... was going to say I am out of ideas, but did not really any to begin with. One post somewhere suggested using a channels.conf file in setup - but could not find any info about how to do this.

Anyway - if anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate the help :-) Otherwise I will have to go remove 30 and install 0.29

You did a full scan (2 - 3 minutes duration) ?
It looks like you just scanned the existing transport or the transport already tuned (by external tool).
Mythtv-setup typically requires exclusive access/control of tuner & with mythbackend stopped.

Could run mythtv-setup from terminal & increased logging (-v chanscan)
