Have you tried to see if any other application using the exact same 
hardware (the PC and the PC tuners) can find them?  Something like 
dvbscan?  http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Dvbscan

Could well be tuner sensitivity/interference, etc., so we need to prove 
that it's actually the software--meaning we need to see some other 
software that uses the same hardware find those channels.
