When setting MythTV up initially, after adding the capture card(s) and
creating the video source(s) you use Input Connections to connect a
channel lineup (video sources) to one of the inputs (tuner, S-Video)
on the capture card. The channel lineups can obviously be different,
as the tuner may have less or more channels configured for it than the
direct S-Video connection.

If you're running the SVN version with the updated channel changing
behaviour, you should be able to select any channel in the EPG whilst
watching LiveTV and the machine should switch automatically to that
channel/input combo, avoiding the need to press 'C'.
