Thanks so much, right on the money. Being 50+ years old I should have 
thought about this but it has been so long since having to set something 
to cable tuning rather than broadcast. When I went into 
mythtv-setup/input the card was set to default. Changing it to us-cable 
fixed the tuning issue.

I guess that somewhere the default changed because under mythdora 5 when 
set to default I could tune all the channels, then under mythdora 10.21 
default gave me the broadcast tuning.

Anyway, thanks for the help.
