MythTV loses "starting channel"

I'm still having small difficulties setting up my MythTV box. Sometimes the right set of modules for the DVB card don't load. When this happens, the MythTV backend obviously can't connect to the DVB frontend device. It also appears to clear the "starting channel" setting for that input. After a reboot to fix the module loading problem, MythTV now refuses to show live tv because of the blank starting channel. It shows a black screen for a period and then returns to the menu with no explaination.

An example from the backend log:

2005-10-30 21:09:42.862 DVB#0 ERROR - No PIDS set, please correct your channel setup.
2005-10-30 21:09:43.862 DVB#0 WARNING - No data from card in 1 second.
2005-10-30 21:09:44.863 DVB#0 WARNING - No data from card in 1 second.
2005-10-30 21:09:45.864 DVB#0 WARNING - No data from card in 1 second.
2005-10-30 21:09:46.865 DVB#0 WARNING - No data from card in 1 second.

To fix this I need to get into mythtv-setup and set it to a valid channel, then restart the MythTV backend.

It would be better if the starting channel wasn't cleared, and/or a random channel was chosen if it is empty.
