[mythtv-users] How do you connect your mythtv to the tv?

First off all,although this is my first email to the list, I've been reading
it for a while.
I have a couple of questions:
*How do you connect the capture card to the tv?
The TV (Sony widescreen) has three SCART inputs, three S-Video inputs (shared
with the SCART inputs), and the analog antenna input.
*How do you change the channel?
I mean, if you change the channel directly from the tv, how does the computer
know what channel are you watching now? If I connect the TV directly to the
antenna without using the pvr-350, then I couldn't use neither LiveTV nor EPG
unless I use another SCART connection for myhtv, right?.
Now, the TV is connected with a SCART connection to the satellite receiver
(not Free To Air, needed a subscription card with a valid key) and also the
TV is connected to the VCR with a coaxial cable. Then, the VCR is
connected to the antenna cable coming from the roof of my house (sorry for
the ascii art):
| TV |<-----<------< Satellite Receiver
--- ---- __| |^
| | |^
|^ | Dish
|^ (coaxial) |
__|___ | (SCART)
| VCR | <-<--<---<----<-----<-- Antenna
I would like to replace the video with mythtv (backend and frontend, but
without losing anything.
