If by this you mean that you've got to assign video sources to input 
connections using the Input Connections section of mythtv-setup, I agree. If 
by this you mean you must delete and then re-create all your video sources 
using the Video Sources section of mythtv-setup, then please elaborate. I've 
left my Video Sources in place through all sorts of experimentation with my 
video input cards and I've seen no problems that have been obviously 
traceable to this practice. Of course, it's possible that some of the 
problems I have had have had this practice as a cause and I just don't 
realize that fact. If this is the case, I'd like to know what sorts of 
problems I'm likely to see when I fail to delete and then re-create video
