It can't find something that isn't in the cardinput table. Take a
look again:

mysql> select * from cardinput;

Bet'cha it's there. I just added a source for an input through
mythtv-setup and it showed up, changed it to "(None)" and it
disappeared. If you have a bogus entry in cardinput that can't be
removed in mythtv-setup then that will need further investigation.
