Running head here on Centos 6.3 without issues.
On my old system, this error generally meant that the tuner card had 
crashed. Myth appears to be missing a timeout and error....
from what I see, if my tuner has crashed/hung, when mythbackend starts, it 
prints out it is starting etc., and then the only indication that it isn't 
working is that it /doesn't/ print that it is starting housekeeping.
Try testing your tuner using mplayer or something to check.

My installation started life as pure SL6, and mine works too.  Recently
I've been treating SL6 and CentOS as equivalent and it still works;
perhaps I ought to be more careful.
