I am at the point of running mythtv-setup, and I have three question.
[[ this is an initial install Fedora6, Mythtv 0.20 current as of Christmas 

(1) I have three capture cards, 1 old pcHDTV card and two newer pcHDTV cards.
     When I did this (setup) a year ago, these showed as different cards, but 
now the
     show all the same.  Since I ASSUME that lspci is just reading info out of
     the card I find this hard to understand.  (OK so this isnt a question, 
but any
     comments on it would be appreciated).

(2)  When I go to mythtv.setup->capture card Setup->Video device I dont know
     what to put there.  Devices have been created, and I see 
     for the three cards, and below each of these demux0, dvr0, frontend0, 
     I have tried each of these (for adapter1) including the directory 
     itself, and none seem to work (see the next question).

(3) If I go on to the Input Connections page, the page comes up blank.  I 
assume this
     is related to my answers for (2).

So, can someone tell me what I should be doing here, and Ill give it a shot.

Thanks in advance.
