Comment(by danielk):

 The log wasn't actually detailed enough, but it's a fairly simple
 diagnosis MythTV does not insert "DTV Program" unless instructed to. Your
 TV and set-top box have probably licensed GemStar data which is also
 available as an encrypted stream. Look for "GemStar", "TV Guide" or
 similar in the TV/STB literature.

 If this is in the US, you can complain to your broadcaster and the FCC.
 The broadcaster is required by law to send TV listing data in the clear in
 addition to any encrypted information they may optionally transmit. Many
 broadcasters do not follow these laws, but the FCC may at any time choose
 to start the process of pulling their broadcasting license if they have
 reports on file. Neither the FCC nor the Attorney General not monitors
 broadcasters' compliance with the law themselves, they depend on private
 citizens like you to report non-compliance with the law.
