That's almost definitely the problem.  A type 47 tuner being used with a 
type 39 definition will only give cable channels 2-61 (up to ~448MHz).  
OTA frequency for channel 13 is ~213MHz and for 14 is ~473MHz.  
Therefore, OTA users trying to use tuner 47 as a 39 can only receive 
channels up to 13, but cable users can get up to 61.

So, either you're using cable but have set OTA in myth, or you're using 
OTA--in which case the tuner is working as expected.

Install the updated video4linux package ( 
http://www.poptix.net/ivtv/Sep-2004/msg00737.html ) as soon as it's 
uploaded.  (If you see snow on all channels, it's not yet uploaded. :)
