I believe the transport editor has been partially broken for DVBS2 capable cards for several MythTV versions.
As it's due for replacement fairly soon there hasn't been much interest in fixing it.

I've had to mess with DB transport parameters before, when Ch4HD was 8psk I found I could tune Ch4HD or BBC HD but not both without manual tweaks. Now I've discovered that provided I do my scans using the Nova HD-S2 rather than the Satix S2 I don't get any problems. Maybe there will be problems again when BBC go to 8psk?
