[mythtv-users] Fwd: PVR500 to capture from video camera or VCR

I verified that both /dev/video0 and dev/video1 work outside of mythtv.

ll /dev/video?
crw------- 1 mythtv root 81, 0 Jan 25 16:46 /dev/video0
crw------- 1 mythtv root 81, 1 Jan 25 16:46 /dev/video1
crw------- 1 mythtv root 81, 2 Jan 25 16:46 /dev/video2

I have also created two capture cards via mythtvsetup -- but both were setup
to /dev/vidoe0 -- DOH

OK so after that PIP does work as expected.  I can watch two programs at the
same time.

Now on to why I started this thread to begin with:

If I have two cards setup already for the PVR500 / one for both /dev/video0
and /dev/video1, should I setup a third for /dev/video0 (second use of this
dev) but point to composite 1?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
