When I was reconfiguring my system recently, I managed to  
accidentally create a *blank* card definition in mythtv-setup.  I  
couldn't figure out why I kept getting that message until I realized  
I could move the highlight bar onto an empty line in the list.  I  
deleted all the cards and re-added them, and the problem went away.
