Comment (by Nick Morrott <knowledgejunkie <at> gmail <dot> com>):

 This now seems to be fixed (tested with r26227). I've tested after
 deleting existing cards/sources in the same setup session, and also after
 restarting mythtv-setup with no cards/sources defined. Opening the Input
 Connections page with no capture cards defined now bounces the user back
 to the main setup menu in both instances.

 In the mythtv-setup rewrite it might be helpful to display an informative
 dialog before returning to the menu (something like "You need to define at
 least one capture card and one video source to configure your input
 connections") and also to require at least one video source before
 allowing interaction with the page. Alternatively, disabling/hiding the
 Input Connections page until these conditions are met might also simplify
