Indeed, mythtv-setup is another problem :-(
No mater what I was trying, tuners on this card wasn't recognized. 
Infact other tuners also wasn't recognized. Problem seems to be somehow 
dependent on number of tuners in system, as in my cloned test system 
with only 2 tuners I was able to configure them).
After hours of tries I was forced to do all capturecard, cardinput, 
diseqc_tree (including SCR trees) & inputgroups setup manually at sql 
Positive is that I have full view how my DVB subsystem is configured 
(monotonic tuners numbers, clear diseqc tree, etc) - but, being under 
time pressure (production system), I was little frustrated that 
down-time took 3h instead of 15min :-(
