Can you provide us with more details on how you've tried to configure
MythTV with your DVB-S card? Are you trying to scan for channels
within MythTV, or are you importing your channels.conf file?

If scanning within MythTV, you need to ensure that you have configured
the LNB (part of capture card setup) before you can successfully scan
for DVB-S channels.

I have run through set up from the start using defaults mostly as I don't know 
what a lot of the settings are.

I have tried setting the card as. IVTV MPEG-2 encoder and DVB DTV capture card 
(v3.x), but neither works.

I looked at the log and it says No capture cards are defined please run the 
setup program.

So maybe I need drivers or something to make myth see the card

I was trying to scan for channels which it does but doesn't find any
