I had the exact same error message. It appears there was a bad card
definition in the database left over from some previous testing I had done.
Go into mythtv-setup's 'Capture Card' setup screen and select 'Delete all
capture cards,' then add your cards back into the database. This will clear
all the capture card definitions from the database and allow you to start
defining them from a clean slate. Be sure to select 'Delete all capture
cards' and not 'Delete all capture cards on [yourBackendsName]' as only
aforementioned delete will get rid of that error message. At least that's
what did it for me.
