Filtering? Spam checking? (I can't help much here; I don't use Thunderbird.)

In which case, add attribution and indent the text manually. And since you're
using format=flowed, you should leave a space at the end of any line (except

Does ~/.xine/channels.conf exist? Is the DVB device *not* in use by any other
program? If so, any xine-lib front-end should work.

  $ gxine dvb://0                     # selects the first channel in the file
  $ gxine dvb://                      # selects the last-tuned channel
