Won't pick up channels via v4l analog or DVB digital

I just got a pc5500 to add in with my old Hauppage 250 so i can get HDTV on my mythdora 5.0 box. After a fresh, clean install I attempted to set up both capture cards without success...after that I took out the Hauppage card in case the problem was caused by compatibility issues.

When I try to scan for channels using the mythtv setup utility I can see the signal strength is above 85% and the noise is low, but it doesn't lock in/pick up any channels for broadcast, cable, cable hrc, etc. The antenna I'm using picks up signals just fine when directly connected to the HDTV, so that's not the issue. dtvscan also picks up no channels.

I also tried hooking up the pc5500 to my cable using the v4l driver to get analog channels, but still no channels are picked up.

Both analog (via cable) and digital (via antenna) don't work...am I doing something wrong or is it the card?

I don't know. Maybe the single apostrophe? Yea I'm only guessing.
But something to try is to let mythtv itself scan for channels. Then go back to the same place in mythtv setup and select edit scanned channels. Take a look at those entries and compare them with entries in your channels.conf.
