The scheduled recordings only show what will be recorded--which presumes 
you actually have a capability to record them (i.e. a properly 
configured and functional capture card).  Since you're also not seeing 
the programs in the guide, that is further evidence that MythTV thinks 
it can't record from your capture cards.

Check, also, your config.xml--it's possible it got broken/changed and 
your system is using a different "profile" name (i.e. "host name"), so 
MythTV thinks the configured capture cards are on some other system.

For anything more than just guesses, though, I'd need to see a log 
(starting with a default-verbosity log of mythbackend startup).
