In mythtvsetup you create a video source and call it say VCR, then on
then input connections tap choose say video0 (composite) and specifiy
the video source as VCR.  Then connect the composite outs from you vcr
to the composite ins of your pvr500.

If you insert a tape in the vcr and start watching live tv then you
can press c and the input of the select input connection will change.

You can read about both of these things at the following locations:

mythtvsetup here http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-9.html


Chaning inputs here http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-11.html#ss11.1

I hope this helps.
