Don't scan with a PVR-250 (or, generally, any other analog card--where 
generally means never if you're using DataDirect).  Create channels with 
the "Fetch channels from listings provider" button (or whatever it's 

Recreate your video sources as I described in my last post (Delete All 
button), but this time, define your channels correctly and all will work.
