No Tuner for Live TV

MythTV

    I have just made a load of changes to my myth backend server. Including updating to Fedora 8 and getting the latest released Mythtv.  All seems well with my Minimyth frontends. However, my 4x H4 MediaMVP's can play recorded programs OK, but whenever I try to watch live tv, I get a warning to say that "No tuners available for live tv". Needless to say, there are free tuners (4 on the master backend and 4 more on a secondary.

    Does anyone have any suggestions where I can start looking to track this problem down?  Does anyone else have mvpmc working for live tv with 0.21?

    Mythbackend version is 0.21.20080304-1
    Schema version is 1214

    This is the contents of a capture of stdout and stderr from a reboot up until the message is displayed
