If anyones interested i managed to fix this by changing
cardinput.inputname from MPEG2TS to DBOX2 for cardinputid='1'.

Dont know if this is a bug or anything but no amount of settings
changes in mythtv-setup changed this for me, and i had to do it by hand.

Will post more once i get channel change to cooperate.
