  When I setup my first DVB card (for QAM, or digital cable) I had a
hard time getting listing data. What I did was go to live TV and switch
to the digital input. You should then get a picture. You will need to
have set a starting channel as another poster mentioned.

  The other thing I did was do a manual recording schedule for the
digital channels I had found with the myth channel scan.
