hit "C" from within myth
or use the command ivtvctl (I forget the parameters, but the help for that
command makes it clear, use "get inputs" to find what they are and then use
"set inputs" to select)

Pretty sure it's not possible to get it to work with no delay. The 350 does
hardware mpeg encoding, which no matter how you slice it, takes time. Even
if you could get that delay down to miliseconds, it would still be noticable
in games. You should be able to test it out without the playstation - try
changing the channel on the cablebox / external tuner, if possible and see
how long the change takes to propogate. or unplug the coax / composite input
and see how long it takes. I think your best bet is an svideo switch. I'd
love to see one that can be controlled by myth, I'd like to use that for dvd
playing, swapping to live display for on demand, menus, etc.
