I don't have the screen up in front of me, but that first screen should just allow you to add DVB cards (I think it needs a list of cards that are now setup).  There is no chance to add any channel info.

To add channels, you need to back out (and at the moment you need to exit mythchannels and come back in).  Then you can go into the settings for that DVB card and setup a channel.  I haven't double checked with the latest code, but you should find that the screen is then not like a DVB-T screen (I'll check tonight though)

Can you give that a try and see if it works any better?
