DVB-T/ATSC new card configuration defaults are wrong

When a new DVB/ATSC card is configured in mythtv-setup the default input in the DiSEqc options is set for television. It should default to dvbinput. Below is an example.

I've been fighting with getting live TV to work (on HD channels only using an HD5000 DVB card), and have therefore tried building/using mythtv from the latest SVN (refreshed/rebuilt last night about midnight... I forget the exact number). After seeing that liveTV did indeed work MUCH better (no more stuttering), I somehow ended up with a mythbackend that 'mismatched' with my database... So I dropped the DB and re-initialized it. Then I went back into mythtv-setup and tried to rescan my channels... I think I finally figured out that I have to choose 'no' separator character for HD channels... But even then, I can't get LiveTV to work... I've chosen channel '91' as my starting channel, because thats been the best/strongest HD channel in my area (Rochester, MN). But when I go into Live TV, it doesn't work, and the mythbackend output says something like this:

Most likely, your DefaultTVChannel setting is wrong. Could not start livetv.

Now, I KNOW that the 'default' channel is set to '51' (2nd 'best' channel in my area)... What am I doing wrong? _ mythtv-dev mailing list mythtv-dev@…

Check in mythtv-setup for that card that dvbinput is selected not television for Default input in the DiSEqc options. _ mythtv-dev mailing list mythtv-dev@…

That was it! Thank you! _

This should be fairly easy to fix, I think it is just because the pane with the inputs on DVB is not loaded by default since we rearranged the config to fit on a smaller screen.

(In [8095]) Fixes #738.

Adds an invisible DiSEqC type and input to the main DVB config so that reasonable defaults are saved if the user never opens up the advanced config panes.
