mythtv won't record Channel 9 or Go! even after channel scan

I'm in Sydney and mythtv won't record Channel 9 or Go! even after channel scan. I needed to update the dtv_multiplex to the correct frequency:

update dtv_multiplex set frequency=191625000 where frequency=191500000;

Bluetooth

The power to the bluetooth adaptor must be enabled before the operating system can see the device.

There are two potential solutions, both of which at present (2.6.22) require patching /drivers/acpi/toshiba_acpi.c
1) This patch from http://memebeam.org/free-software/toshiba_acpi/ applies against 2.6.22. This will enable an emulated /dev/toshiba using the toshiba_acpi module. You will then be able to do:

#  toshset -bluetooth on

2) Add the bluetooth dev to the toshiba_acpi module. http://www.sfires.net/toshiba/. I have not tested this method, as the above worked.

Suspend to Ram

Doesn't work. Tried:

With framebuffer:

# s2ram -f
# s2ram -f -a 1
# s2ram -f -a 2
# s2ram -f -a 3
# s2ram -f -p -s
# s2ram -f -s
# s2ram -f -p
# s2ram -f -a 1 -s

Without framebuffer (vga=0):

# s2ram -f

The exisiting section in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Synaptics Touchpad"
        Driver          "synaptics"
        Option          "SendCoreEvents"        "true"
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/psaux"
        Option          "Protocol"              "auto-dev"
        Option          "HorizScrollDelta"      "0"
EndSection

Add some extra config lines:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Synaptics Touchpad"
        Driver          "synaptics"
        Option          "SendCoreEvents"        "true"
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/psaux"
        Option          "Protocol"              "auto-dev"
        Option          "HorizScrollDelta"      "0"
        Option          "SHMConfig"             "true"
        Option          "MinSpeed"              "0.2"
        Option          "MaxSpeed"              "1.2"
        Option          "AccelFactor"           "0.05"
