By carefully reading the message mythtv gives you and following its 

"MythTV is already using all available inputs for the channel you 
selected. If you want to watch an in-progress recording, select one from 
the playback menu.  If you want to watch live TV, cancel one of the 
in-progress recordings from the delete menu."
