Hi all,
usually if I want watch a VHS,I can use the antenna cable between the 
vcr and the tv (I know,the quality is bad),put channel 36 on my tv and 
it works!

I'd like to do the same thing with my mythtv system in order to recorder 
the vhs tape: so I unplegged the antenna from the tv and plugged the vcr 
as above.

Now the problem is that I can't find a valid channel/frequency with my 
PVR-150: I use ivtv-0.4.0 and the program ptune-ui.pl (I hacked the 
source to have a fine tune to 50) to set the channel.
But I can'f find a valid frequency!

For a couple of secs I had a valid picture from the tape,but it disappared!

someone can help me, please?
