There was a bug in the 0.20.2 release that prevents channels from being
added to a firewire connected source. The workaround is to disconnect
the source from the firewire card in input connections and run
mythfilldatabase on the command line. Alternatively you can upgrade to
the latest and greatest 0.20-fixes which has a fix for this bug as of
3 days ago.
