No cards are listed in the configuration for channel mapping and therefore cannot map the channels to the card.
Mediaportal - Mytv will not turn on tv due to channel not being mapped.

    Please post logs. No one can help without this.

    Are you using SETUPTV for the TVESERVER?

    Have you done a channel scan for your card?

    Does the scan pickup channels (logs would show this) ?

    Yes, I'm using SetupTv.exe for the configuration.
    Yes I have done a channel scan, It found the few available ones including some I was unaware of.
    I can see the channels listed in the combinations and epg grabber configuration when i select the card from the drop down list which is listed as:
    Hauppage WinTV 88x DVB-S Tuner/Demod
    There are three other card entries also(although there is only the one hybrid card installed)

    When I am in TV Mapping I cannot select any cards, there is none in the drop down list.

    Is there a way I can manually edit the configuration so I can get this working?

    At this stage I wold suggest deleting the database (MS-SQL or My-SQL?) and start afresh.

    Have you tried the SVN update ?

    we need the tv.log and error.log from your attempt to map the channel.
    but be aware that after you did a scan with the tv-card, the channels are allready mapped to it.

    a screenshot of the configuration util. where we see the "problem" would also help. :)
