[mythtv-users] Live TV and recording - how to use profiles?

I am making progress of sorts....
I have a stable backend, it records from both analog and digital OTR
I have 2 tuners; one analog, which works fine, one digital, and it
causes segfaults in the frontends.
But frontends segfault immediately on trying to watch live tv. Some
debugging shows that while I *think* I have my profiles set up to be
relatively low-resolution (480x480) my frontends are getting the full
1920x1022 x 30 fps (sorry, I'm going from memory - whatever the
resolution is) feed.
I've tried 4 different frontends, with the same result; immediate
segfault on live tv. I suspect it is due to the massive amount of data
coming down the pipe....
I am doing a test recording, and it is recording an 'Arthur' episode,
dumping about 100MB/minute to the disk.
How do I set up profiles and tell the TV to use the right one? I can
easily and reliably show DVD - type resolutions - and frankly, for
taping news and kid shows that's all I really need.....
