vdr: no signal


I've got vdr installed according to http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/vdr-guide.xml with lib-xine as a frontend. I've also got a working dvb config which I can tell from the fact that everything works in Kaffeine.
Now, what I see running vdr-sxfe xvdr://localhost is just a black screen with a 'No Signal' message. No evidence of onscreen menu whatsoever. vdr won't react to keyboard keys pressed and 'Switch to your output screen and follow the on-screen instructions.' is not a valid instruction as there's no menu. Here's vdr-related part of /var/log/messages
Code:

Anyone faced this? I'm stuck.

Did you ever get this sorted? I am seeing exactly the same thing with Ubuntu 8.04.

Cheers,
David

I worked this out eventually - the channels.conf file needed to be created properly (scan -o vdr) and it started working.

Cheers,
David
