There are two problems at work here.
The current 2.6.20 kernel no longer autoloads the cx88-dvb module needed 
by some HD cards.  Axel posted a circumvention earlier in this thread.

There does appear to be a problem with channel scanning with the current 
  atRPMs used with this kernel.

Both problems are actively being worked on and I'd recommend a little 
restraint on upgrading until the problems are fully understood and 
fixed.  I'll post a "Solved" subject line when I know that to be true.
