It looks to me like MythTV doesn't know what frequency to tune to.  I'm
sure when I see messages like this in my log it says something like:

   Channel (/dev/video0)::TuneTo(12345600Hz):

Are you sure you've got the channels setup correctly?  Have a look in
Mythtv-setup in the channel editor screen.  Edit each channel and on the
second page is the setup for how to tune in to the channel.  (At least
thats where it is for analog.  I'm not sure about digital, but I guess it
will be in a similar location)
