Channels 5 & 6 are the magic channel numbers that almost always mean
you're using the wrong frequency table. My guess is that you've set
Myth to use standard (ntsc-cable), but you should be using HRC
(ntsc-cable-hrc)--although the exact opposite could be true. Change the
setting in mythtv-setup.
If, however, you got all channels except 5 & 6, you would be using
standard instead of IRC. If you get no channels, you'd be using HRC
instead of IRC or vice versa.
