Active scanning can not work while you ae watching LiveTV or making a 
recording. It is only started after the recorder has been unused for
a while. To test active scanning make sure it is enabled and then let
the backend run unattended for a while with "-v eit" after a few minutes
it should start scanning all your transports. (You can modify the
timeouts for active scanning in mythtv-setup under the General pane.)
