(Not a US user, but...) If you remove channel 2 from your zap2it
lineup, then reconfigure MythTV, then re-add it to your zap2it lineup,
and again reconfigure MythTV, does the channel get picked up again and
the problem go away?

When program listings are "Unknown" it means there is no listings data
available for that time/channel.
