Run "setup" and answer "no" to the questions. Create a new
Video Source but leave the zipcode blank so it doesn't setup
a grabber for the source. Go to Input Connections and setup
your new source to the SVID connection. Go to Channel Editor
and create one dummy channel for the new source. To record,
go to mythfrontend TV->Schedule Recordings->Manual Schedule
and choose your new dummy channel for "Channel:".
