Adding "-v record" to the mythbackend command line is a start.  But
you probably also need to be looking at kern.log and syslog for errors
about the drivers.

Do the tuners work again if you cold start the SBE box (power it down
and leave it off long enough for all the power supply capacitors to
drain, 60 seconds or so)?

What sort of tuners are these?

Have you checked the cables?  Cables are always the most likely thing
to cause problems.
