I believe I had this same problem with the 2.0 cx88-atsc driver for the
HD-3000. I ended up actually modifying the driver itself slightly,
because it didn't appear to be responding to the call Myth makes to
query the inputs. All works fine now, but I have hoped to find a way
to get it to work without a custom modification to the driver. If you
figure it out please post your findings. Otherwise I'd be glad to
provide the changes I made to the driver if you want to try it.
