Do you actually have device nodes showing up in /dev/dvb/adapter<n>?
Does the user you are running mythtv-setup as, as well as the user that will be running mythbackend, have read and write permissions to those nodes?
We need logs from mythtv-setup.

Thank you for the feedback. The issue seems to be permissions to the nodes.

Could you point me to a location to get information about how to set device permissions correctly?

Thank you!

Leave the device permissions as they are. Add your user to the group that has ownership.
