I had trouble setting up my DC10 (MJPEG) with the current CVS version until I 
manually copied the mythtv/setup/setup executable to 
/usr/local/bin/mythtv-setup. For some reason make install did not do this, it 
only copied a setup.xml file. Once I manually copied the new setup file and 
ran it, I could select the proper card type for my DC10 in the capture card 
section and resetup my recording profiles in mythfrontend setup. So if you 
are running the CVS version then you might check that.
