And in the same screen untick "Use DVB Card for active EIT scan"
otherwise mythtv will keep the card open scanning EIT and never let you use both DVBS2 and DVBT
If you need EIT data sometimes you really need another card that is just DVBS or DVBT so the EIT is scanned properly and up to date, some providers it works fine without the active scan, it depends on how your broadcaster sends their EIT.
