Well you've obviously got your dvb card working properly, so it looks
like a myth configuration problem.
A few things to try.
1. Rerun mythtvsetup, delete capture cards and channels and run
through all the screens again, starting at the top. Maybe there was
something you missed. In the Capture Card screen did dvb0 show up,
when you selected dvb as the card type?
2. Check that mythbackend is not running when you configure the
capture card, or try and run the channel scan.
3. As an experiment, try running mythtvsetup as root. If the channel
scan button lights up, thats a clue that you've got permission
problems on your dvb devices. Don't carry on with the setup though.
Back out, fix the permissions, and run mythtvsetup again as your
I suspect that you've tried all of the above, but I can't think of
anything else obvious.
