I'm finally upgrading my old KnoppMyth box to new hardware and have put R8 on it. Everything's been smooth up to the point where I try to "Fetch channels from listings source" for my three tuners (HDHomeRun Prime). Unfortunately, nothing happens. I can successfully retrieve my lineup from Schedules Direct (WOW Chicago Suburbs - Cable (60193) IL58819), and I've followed the steps both here:
(mythTV 0.25 - what LinHES R8 uses)

and here:
(mythTV 0.24-fixes - it tells you to create a Demo test recorder capture card and use that with the video source temporarily to get channel listings)

Here's the output when I run mythfilldatabase and only update channels:

[root@vidiot ~]#

Only when I have the dummy capture card set to use the input source do I get a successful download. However, no channels show up in the channel editor. If it's just the HDHomeRun Prime tuners set to the input source, I get the message "DataDirect: Failed to get data: Download error" when running the same mythfilldatabase command above.

I chatted with Cecil, the creator of KnoppMyth/LinHES, and he said that he ran into the same issue himself, but it fixed itself eventually. I'm okay with waiting, but at the same time am anxious to get my new box up and running :-) Any suggestions, or ways I could get the channel info inputted another way? Or also a way I could perhaps check the data that's being downloaded to see if it's correct?

Thanks very much!

I was able to get channels to populate by deleting all capture cards and re-doing the 0.24 steps in the link I posted above:

Didn't think I had to delete all tuners. Reminds me of the old R4, R5 KnoppMyth setup days where after the initial install, you had to do the same thing and re-add your tuner for it to work. :-)
Now I have to figure out why I can tune ClearQAM channels using the Windows HDHomeRun test tuner program, but my LinHES box can't watch LiveTV (haven't tried recording anything yet)...screen goes blank for a half second.

FURTHER UPDATE (04-20-13):
Turns out that in order to tune ClearQAM, I wasn't supposed to use the channel listings from Schedules Direct, as they don't provide QAM channels. Instead, I had to do a channel scan, and then use the Channel Editor to match up the scanned channels with the XMLID provided by Schedules Direct via their website. Now I can finally tune channels via Myth!
