MythTV Channel setup


I have a problem configuring the channels for mythtv. I am using the EIT (Transmitted guide only).
My card is Hauppage WinTV HVR-1110 DVB-T card.

In mythtv-setup i configured a videosoure named 'freeview' in menu point 3 (Videosources.)

Point 4:
my mappings are:
[DVB:0] (DVBInput) -> freeview
[MJPEG: /dev/video0] (Televion) -> freeview
[MJPEG: /dev/video0] (Composite) -> freeview
[MJPEG: /dev/video0] (S-Video) -> freeview

When I start a channel scan the scanninig dialog. It seems to run over a view frequencies and
shows different signal / noise ratios and it shows the following messages:

Code:
Timeout Scanning offset 1 --no signal
Timeout Scanning --no signal
Timeout Scanning offset 1 --no signal
Timeout Scanning --no signal
  [...]
Timeout Scanning offset 1 --no tables
Timeout Scanning --no signal
Please let me know if what additional information you need.


Started on the console mythtvbackend show the following:

Increasing the timeout times solved my problems. I have a cheap antenna and i guess the signal is not too good. However, i managed to detect a few channels.
