I meant to check that you have them set correctly within mythtv on the
channel scanning page.

This sounds like a driver/firmware issue, though I'm not sure why it would
work with other tools and not with myth if that were the case.  Did you
compile from source?  If so did you --enable-dvb?  In your capture card
setup, you select "DVB DTV Capture card (v3.x)" correct?  From what I
understand the pcHDTV capture card code is broken and so users of that card
should select the generic device.
