Fix Channel Tuning Broken with DVB-C (Ziggo), closes #7486
Is that mythtv_fix_broken_providers_with_gui.3.diff from #7486 applied to master? No point in wasting developer time by looking at the same patch three times :-)
Just adding "I have been running with that patch for N month, it solved the issue for me. I was not able to scan channels without it" to the ticket should be all it takes.
It is indeed the mythtv_fix_broken_providers_with_gui.3.diff from #7486 applied to master, as well as fixes/0.25.
The 'N month' part of your comment does not apply. The patch is only active during scanning. I scanned 7 times, just to make sure it does solve the issue for me. It does very much so!
Ziggo, my provider, has changed some channels lately, so I had the chance to scan once more. It still solved my issue.
Mind you, I did indeed add a comment over two months ago to the ticket, in which I stated that it solved my issue.
Sorry, must have been blind to not see your comment on the ticket :/ I was just wondering if the pull request had some subtle difference from the patch in the ticket that the devs should be aware of or not.
