Here are a few things I would check:

1) Are you still running the old backend? The protocol used by the 
version in svn is version 36 (the mythtv-0.20-fixes branch is still at 
version 31). Have you restarted the mythbackend service?

# /sbin/service mythbackend restart

2) When you compiled mythtv, have you configured it with --prefix=/usr 
or --/prefix=/usr/local? If you chose to follow the tutorial (and 
installed to /usr/local), have you done the following?:

# echo "/usr/local/lib" >> /etc/ld.so.conf
# /sbin/ldconfig
