What I did in the end was to remove a connection from MythTV setup so
that only the compositie (i.e. digital cable box) remains.  This assured
that the channel 3 specified in manual recording was indeed the channel
3 from that specific input.

But that's awkward.  Shutting down the frontend and backend to run
mythtvsetup, etc...  And afterwards adding back tuner 1.

I'm quite surprised that a choice of inputs is not offered when
scheduling a recording.  It assumes that all inputs are from the same
source and that's a bit surprising in the Linux world where modularity
is a strong aspect.

Or perhaps I'm missing something completly.  It surely does not seem
obvious from the user menus.  How would you schedule a recording from a
specific input of a multi-input TV card ?
