I had a similar problem. My solution was to fix up the entries in the
startchan column in the cardinput table of the database. They had been
reset to 3, which isn't a channel for me, hence DVB failing and not
finding any pids. I haven't had a problem since, but I'm not sure what
caused the problem in the first place, except it happened after updating
to the latest CVS. 

Hope that helps
