Yes I fixed the problem now.

The issue was that my DVB card is the secondary card on another computer 
- and the start up channel was set to 1, which I assumed to be the 
card's inbuilt channel, but I realised it was supposed to be set to 
MythTV's database channel, which is 2001, put the number in the startup 
and it works lovely now.  Phew!
