So far as I can tell, mythtvsetup has worked OK.  The Channel Editor is
full of channels, some of which  I've never heard of, so I assume it's
picked them up off the transport.

I think the important error messages are:

2005-07-22 21:14:48.995 Took more than 10 seconds to be allowed to read,
aborting.

But I can't figure out what's going on (or not going on) to be able to
fix it.

If anyone has seen this problem, how did you fix it?
