I fixed my mysterious video channel tuning problem.
I have a VCR inline to the PVR-250 to make recordings
of all my video tapes and had forgotten about it when
Myth went to record a channel on Friday. When I came
home Friday to check the new scheduled recordings,
they were all fuzz. I spent the entire weekend doing
Bare Metal installations of FC2 and MythTV. Using Jarod's
guide and Axel's RPMs, I got it down to about 3 hours.
After the 5th time, I decided to walk away. I had to work
at the Buffalo Bills game on Sunday, so I just figured
I'd get some separation to think about what might have
Let's just say it was divine intervention. It dawned on
me when I was in church Sunday morning before going
to the game that I had probably left the VCR on and
had forgotten to turn it off Thursday night after making
a mpg recording from Happy Thanksgiving, Charlie Brown.
As soon as I got hom from working the game, I turned
off the VCR, finished up configuring Myth for the 6th
time in 2 days, and voila!,I was able to watch TV
and record stuff as clear as a bell.
What an idiot I am...thanks for all the help many of
you diplomatically offered that explained I either have
a bad card, the cable went bad, etc. As I've told
many people before - PEBCAK.
I had a very good laugh at my own expense...LOL!
