Am I missing something here or does MythTV work differently in the US to
the rest of the world...

I have 3 inputs:
 - Composite for the VCR to access old tapes (no guide data)
 - S-Video for the sat STB (no directly available guide data)
 - DVB-S card for FTA programs (EIT data available)

So where in these is there a TV listings source? The current name makes
perfect sense to me - each source is where I get video from (stuff I want
to view/listen to, something I don't do with listings data!!).

PS - I'm in New Zealand.
