Have a look at the following resource and see if it helps at all. It
covers most aspects of getting DVB up and running in MythTV:


The process is similiar in Australia for setting up DVB, so it should
help you along. If you want to post your /etc/modprobe.conf file and
output of dmesg when your DVB drivers are loaded it might be useful.

I would also start the frontend with verbose logging (-vv I think) to
see if this gives any more pointers.
