This is interesting. I've had not problems since we moved in a year ago and since this thread started its been poor until tonight when I now have nothing.

If I pick a channel in the guide it locks Mediaportal up and when I scan I get a full signal level and a signal quality just shy of 100% but no channels are found.

Turns out my problems were from MediaPortal spitting the dummy at U having been taken off. Seems it doesn't play nice when a channel is removed and you have to do it manually.
