Then you have managed to try almost every option but the one that 
actually matters.  All of those input types are for analog devices.  You 
have a digital tuner.  Hence, you use the "DVB DTV capture card 
(v3.x)".  Assuming your tuner drivers are installed properly, MythTV 
will autodetect the card as /dev/dvb/adapter0, at which point you can 
bind your video source to your tuner input, and scan for channels.
