Bad capture card data.  My (oft-repeated, kind-of-catch-all, but 
typically always-correct) recommendation:  Use the "Delete All" buttons 
in mythtv-setup to delete all capture cards and all video sources and 
then re-create capture cards, video sources, input connections, and 
channels.  You /must/ use the "Delete All" buttons rather than deleting 
individual cards/sources.

See http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/260095#260095 for 
why this is the best approach to fixing your system.
