In mythtv-setup you define a capture card. After that, I think it's
option 4, Input Connections. In that screen you assign a Video Source
(which you assumably setup) to an input on your tuner. So, you would
assign, say your OTA channels to your "Television" option in Input
Connections. The OTA channels are setup in the Video Source screen.
Hopefully that all makes sense and points you in the right direction.
