[mythtv-users] Firewire input editor always says, "Please add channels to source"

That's a bug in 20.2, connect that lineup to another input (like s-video1 if
you have a pvr-x50) and try.

I had this problem and I worked around it connecting my firewire lineup to
my hdhomerun to get the channels, then I restored to the correct one.
