Even better! :)
If it is the Input Connections configuration that's the problem, the
procedure I mention above and in the linked post combined with properly
reconfiguring the Input Connections will fix the problem. Here, "Input
Connections configuration" refers to the video sources, channels
(including tuning information), and capture cards, and card inputs
If this approach doesn't help, and you're sure you've reconfigured
things properly, the issue is likely elsewhere (potentially outside of
MythTV--like with the capture cards/drivers/signal).

I hope this approach does just that for you. Good luck!
