I'll make a guess that you have your encoder setup for v4l instead of 
mpeg2 in the initial mythtv-setup. Looks like it's trying to use a 
software encoder instead of the hardware encoder. Re-run mythtv-setup 
(clearing your settings when it asks) and set the capture for mpeg2 
instead of v4l. Hope that helps.
