You may have specified an incorrect tuner in your /etc/modprobe.conf
file. Do you see the same behaviour in other TV programs aside from

I think this is more like a UHF/VHF thing (more precisely that you
probably have a wrong config telling mythtv to look for broadcast
channels, not cable channels).  I just yesterday figured out this was
my issue after playing around with it for a week.  I do not know how
it got that way, but I did download (yum atrpms) a new version just a
bit ago--maybe it overwrote some defaults.

Anyway, enter  mythtvsetup; then enter the general (first) section;
proceed to the Global Backend Setup (third or forth page, I think);
one of the options is Channel frequency table; hopefully yours has
been switch to us-broadcast--switch it over to us-cable.  Check TV
again to see if you can see above 13.

Again, not sure what caused a change in this, as I definitely had not
since setting it up.  My current revs are mythtv-suite-0.19-60.at on
