Are you scanning for DVB channels within MythTV?

I suggest you start by using a simpler GUI app like Kaffeine. It will
display the EPG if it can receive it, and is more user-friendly than
dvbsnoop. dvbsnoop (and by extension epgsnoop, which was mentioned in
another thread) will be able to give you the answer to "Is an EPG
being transmitted in the DVB stream" though.

I see that you posted to linux-media a while ago about the KWorld card
- try configuring only one of the tuners in MythTV and see if that
helps. Start with active EIT collection disabled and start LiveTV or
schedule something to record. The EPG should be received whilst
watching LiveTV or during a scheduled recording (this is how passive
EIT collection works).
