The OP's problem is that there are two input sources in MythTV (one 
firewire, one composite) that both use the same cable box.  If you are 
using one input source, say the composite, and the other input source 
has a program scheduled at the same time, it will disrupt the other by 
changing the cable box channel.  The easy way to get around that is to 
get a second cable box, but that adds a monthly rental fee that the OP 
may not want to pay (nor do I, my cable bill is too high as it is). 
Barring that, if the software could be tweaked to link two different 
input sources, in the same way multiple input sources on a single card 
such as the PVR-250 are linked, then this situation wouldn't cause any
