Have you used ivtvctl to try all of the inputs available through the
driver (typically tuner, 4x composite, and 4x S-Video)? Normally this
will let you work out which inputs you need to connect up to video
sources in mythtvsetup. When using ptune, you also need to ensure you
are using the correct channel settings (e.g. US cable, Europe etc)
