Are you able to record successfully on this tuner at all? If it's
failing on LiveTV on all frontends it likely points to the card itself
not working.

Do the frontend/backend logs or the dmesg/messages logs provide any
useful info (the backend log is the best place to start - it may say
why LiveTV is failing if it cannot initialise the card properly).
