It sounds like maybe you didn't associate your tuners with your video
sources. Double-check the Input Connections screen in mythtv-setup and
ensure that each tuner is associated with a video source.

If that's not the problem, then there are some options you can use
when running mythfilldatabase to force it to refresh your guide data
(--refresh-all I believe, but somebody else should confirm that before
you run it). Also, there's a button on the Input Connections screen
that says "Fetch Channels from Listings Source"; if you click that, it
should grab all of your channels and save you from having to enter the
xmlids by hand.

As for Ubuntu, if you have a dedicated Myth backend that does what you
want it to, and that works with your hardware, there's no need to
dist-upgrade every time a new release comes out (if it ain't broke,
don't fix it). If you just want to keep up with the latest Myth
releases, consider adding either the JYA or the Mythbuntu repo to your
sources list.

Hope that helps!
