Or a configuration problem...  ;)

Yes, it's normal.  As a matter of fact, if you do an "ivtvctl -a", 
you'll see a listing of the inputs, including:

        Input   : 5
        Name    : Composite 4
        Type    : 0x00000002
        Audioset: 0x00000003
        Tuner   : 0x00000000
        Standard: 0x00000000007F3FFF ( PAL NTSC SECAM )
        Status  : 0

Which shows that when you specify "ivtvctl /dev/video -p 5", you're 
selecting Composite 4.

??? Hauppauge, perhaps?
