Myth needs to be able to issue a channel change command with a good 
return value before it will try to capture a stream. Try setting your 
channel change command to a blank line which will enable the internal 
changer. Also try setting your capture device to broadcast -vs- 
point-to-point. I had to increase the signal timeout value to 5000 (5 
seconds) or it would sometimes time-out on a good channel if there were 
any hiccups at all. Even with all this, the darn thing will still 
sometimes fail to work.
