I have a Baby monitor Cam I mutiplex on to my cable TV coax. I went into
my mythtv-setup and added the channel "121" to the analog cable lineup,
now I can tune it like any other. Of course it has no program guide
data. Tho I suppose I could add some. I assume this could be done for
the composite video input as well.
