One of these four things fixed it, I didn't check after each change so I cannot confirm which one, but it's working like a champ now!
1. Upgraded BIOS from 2007 version to latest (2009)
2. Changed "Legacy USB" from enabled to disabled in BIOS
3. Only assigned one input group to the composite tuner
4. Yelling at it

>>> Does the user that mythbackend is running as (usually mythtv) have write permission to /dev/video*? I think this usually means adding the mythtv user to the video group.
