You want to use /dev/video0. You will select composite, RCA, or S-Video in

I had a similar problem on mine. If your mythbackend file in
/etc/rc.d/init.d is a script add the line export HOME=/root (or whatever
your home directory is) and it should work. The problem is that mythbackend
is looking for your mysql.txt file in /.mythtv/ instead in your home
directory. You can also copy your mysql.txt file to /.mythtv/ to fix it.
It was supposed to be so Easy.
