  What do you see on the screen if you try to tune to one of these
  channels in MythTV's "Live TV" mode?

After a few seconds I get the failsafe screen that reports it has no data but it should by now, I should try a different channel or source It's not true. If a shutdown mythbackend I'm perfectly capable of capturing that channel with test-mpeg2.
