Well, the only video sources that come up in mythtv-setup are the three
from the V4L drivers. My old DVB source is not listed. Perhaps I could
check the DB for this? Interestingly enough, I have noticed that when I
exit mythtv-setup, it complains that something is set to an invalid
channel (one of my old HDTV channels), but that is not the case for the
video sources I can see. Perhaps I should delete and rebuild my sources.
