I have a question regarding setting up mythtv on my home system. I have the 
WinTV btvv card (bt878), with the msp....something... audio chip. 

The btaudio drivers give me an analogue DSP, which is 44.1kHz, 16bit MONO, and 
a digital DSP which is 32kHz, 16bit stereo. Unless I missed something though, 
the nuppelvideo codec expects only 44.1Khz 16 bit stereo? 

Is there a way to specify a different samplerate for nuppel recording 
(although from the source it appears it is a fixed sample rate), or should I 
use the passthrough audio cable from bttv card to soundcard-in ?

Also, will mythtv only work with the xvideo extension? (I use an old ati card 
without xvideo because the nvidia closed source drivers don't work with the 
dual head setup, although I haven't used the nivida card now in almost a 
year, maybe the drivers work better now :-)

While I am at the question stage :-) .. is the xmltv output only imported into 
the SQL database and does mythtv use the SQL for program data? I have some 
perl scripts for my tv channels (Finland), but if it's possible I'd much 
rather just import it straight to mysql than make it xmltv compliant first.

Thanks for any feedback,
Best regards
