[mythtv-users] PVR-250 Composite Input

In Myth setup I have set to use Composite 4 as the default input under 
Capture Card. Also under Input Connections I connect Composite 4 to my 
default video source.

I then run a RCA from my sat box to the composite input. I also plug in 
the audio to the line in on the pvr-250.
