Resolved (Sort of): OpenDCT: Not tuning a channel from HDHR-CC


I have a couple of HDHR-CC that haven't had any problems with OpenDCT for a while now. However, recently, I've noticed that channel 711 - CBS HD on my Xfinity network is not being able to be tuned. When I've watched the logs, I can see this error:

22:34:21.955 [SageTVRequestHandler-152CT-HDHomeRun Prime Tuner 1321411B-1] INFO HDHRNativeCaptureDevice - Starting the encoding for the channel '711' from the device 'DCT-HDHomeRun Prime Tuner 1321411B-1' to the file 'd:\Videos\DCT-HDHomeRun Prime Tuner 1321411B-1 on 1270019000 Digital TV Tuner-0.mpgbuf' via the upload id '1131211942'...
22:34:21.955 [SageTVRequestHandler-152CT-HDHomeRun Prime Tuner 1321411B-1] INFO ChannelManager - Auto-map failed to get the frequency and program for the channel '711'.
22:34:21.955 [SageTVRequestHandler-152CT-HDHomeRun Prime Tuner 1321411B-1] WARN HDHRNativeCaptureDevice - Unable to tune channel because no references were found for this channel number. Will attempt to tune as vchannel.
And for ChannelManager, I can see this:
22:32:37.191 [ChannelManager-56] INFO ChannelManager - Updating the HDHomeRun channel lineup HDHomeRun DRI Tuner 1321411B (dct_hdhomerun).
22:32:37.192 [ChannelManager-56] INFO HDHomeRunChannels - Connecting to HDHomeRun using the URL ''
In fact, I thought 711 was an isolated incident, but it turns out that after further testing, the only channel I seem to bel able to tune at this time is 727 - Hallmark.

So, my question is, is there a way I can get further down into ChannelManager to see why automap isn't finding the channels from the HDHR listing, because those channels are definitely there in the xml:

HTML Code:
One of my HDHR-CC entries in
sagetv.device.-199338275.device_name=DCT-HDHomeRun Prime Tuner 131B4C09-0

Just as a follow up:

I think that somehow the either got stale ($openrun_home/config/lineup/ or got borked.

I decided to stop opendct, remove that file, and start up. Seems all of my missing channels are now present and available.

I suppose it would/could be an exercise in code archeology to see if I could figure out WHY the lineup wasn't updating with all of my channels, but at this point, I'm not sure I have the time to dig.

Anyway, just an update, and I'll update the title to reflect that the issue is no longer a deal breaker for me.
