[mythtv-users] Use Myth to digitize VHS/analog media?

Hey, all.
Long time no e.
0.20 is rocking out with no issues for me.
Thanks for all the efforts that have gone into this.

I have a question for you.
I'm sure it has been answered, but I have not been able to turn it up on

Can I use MythTV to digitize my old VHS collection?
It seems feasible, but I am a bit stumped.

My capture card is a PVR-350 and I am interested in using the analog
"break-in" box.
I just took a look at mythtvsetup  - Input Connections and I have

Tuner1 (set up and rocking)
S-Video1 (None)
Composite1 (None)
S-Video2 (None)
Composite 2 & 3 (None & None)

Going into these, of course, gives me lots of options for television,
but nothing obvious for standalone capture.
While I am sure I could noodle out a solution outside of Myth, I think
it would be far cooler to do it from within!

Has anyone covered or succeeded in getting MythTV to do this?
Care to point me in the right direction?
