I'm using KnoppMyth (pre-built 0.14 distribution) with a PVR-350 card and
TV reception is working well. I can watch, change channels and record.
I would like to record some input from a camcorder, and so I am trying to
set up the Composite 0 input on the PVR-350 card, but currently I can't get
it to change to this input at all.
I created a new video source in mythtv-setup called "VCR", using tv_grab_na
as the grabber but all other info blank.
I then went into "Input connections" and bound "VCR" to Composite 0.
Then fired up mysql and changed the tvgrabber for VCR to "". The database
entry now looks like:
sourceid=8, name=VCR, xmltvgrabber="", userid="", freqtable=default
Then I created a channel in the database. Most of the fields are defaults,
chanid=8006, channum=6, freqid=22, sourceid=8, callsign=VCR, name=VCR
When I fire up mythfrontend and watch tv, pressing "c" only gives me Tuner
0, never Composite 0, and trying to change to channel 6 never actually
changes the channel.
I even tried puting a fake entry into the program table for this channel
but it makes no difference.
What am I doing wrong?
