What I did was leave it in the configuration, but set the composite
input to connected to a dummy listing that only has channel 1, which I
named "VCR." Now I can do manual recording through Myth from the VCR,
which works better for me than doing it outside Myth.
I noted that my PVR-250 claims to have three composite inputs, which I
suspect are actually separate chroma and luminance, along with the full
composite, as one is junk and the other is black-and-white. Be sure you
select the correct input.
