You could try importing a channels.conf file, rather than letting myth 
scan for itself.

To generate channels.conf...
Use 'scan' which is one of the utilities on the
http://www.linuxtv.org/  site.

The actual command to generate channels.conf is like this

./scan dvb-t/canberra-au | tee mychannels.conf

The source for scan, and example tuning data files for many 
places in the world are in the utilities package 
(named linuxtv-dvb-apps-1.1.0) This package also comes 
with szap/tzap/czap   (satellite/terrestrial/cable)
