This may be related to the problems I've been having -- as discussed 
here: http://mythtv.org/pipermail/mythtv-users/2010-May/288339.html

I've found that neither of my Hauppauge DVB-S cards can pick up any of 
the high-band multiplexes (i.e. those with frequencies of 11720 or 
above) because the cards aren't sending the required 22KHz tone to the 
LNB.  (See http://www.satcure.co.uk/tech/lnb.htm#universal )

Either that or a faulty LNB may be limiting the range of multiplexes 
that you can receive.
