Hmmm... not sure your answer is what I was after. What I meant by
inputs are: "TV", "Composite1", "SVideo", and "Composite3" (those are
the options for my tuner card). Usually, hitting "C" allows you to
rotate thru the different input options, but it's not doing anything
for me, other than a short flicker as if it was trying to change mode.
xawtv still can switch thru the sources, so I know the card isn't
faulty. I actually used that to my advantage tonight. Since MythTV
wouldn't switch the input, whatever mode I had selected when I exited
xawtv, was the input that MythTV started up as, so I was able to record
from the Composite input with MythTV, but in a work-around way. :)
