I changed mythfrontend to window from full-screen.  Now, when I select "fetch channels", I indeed see the console window showing the database requests going out.  So I believe that mythtv is retrieving the channel lists.

I still can't watch tv, though.  Clearly, I have something misconfigured.  I am running mythtv 0.20.2, not the latest svn head.

Thanks for your help,
