I'm not sure, have you tried to reinstall the mythtv packages?

 From what I gather from a quick look at this page, tvtime may not work 
with pvr devices. I can't confirm, but that is what is stated, you'll 
need to use a different player.


So, I would now concentrate on getting the mythtv software reinstalled, 
and if you want to test the card before you do this, you can use 
something like mplayer, or vlc, to do it.


P.S.  People really appreciate it if you reply at the bottom of the 
email messages you are responding to. It makes the archived discussions 
much easier to follow.
