I have the same 2 cards in my MythTV system.  While
your symptoms don't match mine (and I'm on mythbuntu
10.04/MythTV 0.25pre) I did have a problem with my
HVR-2250 being active after every boot.

I didn't notice the black screen you mentioned, the
HVR-2250 just wasn't always available.

The solution was the following in /etc/mythtv-backend.conf:

start on (local-filesystems and net-device-up IFACE=lo
    and video4linux-device-added
    and dvb-device-added KERNEL=dvb0.frontend0
    and dvb-device-added KERNEL=dvb1.frontend0
    and dvb-device-added KERNEL=dvb2.frontend0)
stop on starting shutdown

See: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Upstart_mythbackend_Configuration
for details.

Take care,
