I'm running Charter digital cable in Massachusetts. I currently do not have any other active sources although there is a PVR-150 installed in the machine.

It's only finding 2 tunable non-encrypted channels, which is odd because when I run the same scan from Windows it finds five or six. When I launch mythfrontend and it's tuned to a channel the HDHR can't view it kicks me back to the main menu. When I try a second time it will kick me back to the main menu and my backend will crash with a seg fault. If I can tune to an active channel in the front end quickly enough, it will stay stable around 70% of the time.

I'm looking at this line:
2008-01-12 18:17:52.429 ChannelBase(4) Error: InitializeInputs():
                         Could not get inputs for the capturecard.
                         Perhaps you have forgotten to bind video
                         sources to your card's inputs?

Did you set up your sources, and then assign your digital cable list
of sources to the HD Homerun?  It looks like it's trying to tune
analog channel 3, so I'd guess not.
