I notice an error in /var/log/mythtv/mythtvbackend.log after I added 
firewire capture card as well as s-video input on /dev/video0 for my 
pvr-350. This is the error:

2007-09-06 09:05:54.839 TVRec(12) Error: Problem finding starting channel, 
setting to default of '3'.
2007-09-06 09:05:54.840 ChannelBase(12) Error: InitializeInputs():
                        Could not get inputs for the capturecard.
                        Perhaps you have forgotten to bind video
                        sources to your card's inputs?
2007-09-06 09:05:54.843 mythbackend: Problem with capture cards: Card 
12failed init

then a little lower it says:

2007-09-06 09:05:56.242 AutoExpire: Found 2 recorders w/max rate of 210 


2007-09-06 09:06:47.326 MythSocket(ac79d168:-1): writeStringList: Error, 
socket went unconnected.

How can i figure out which capture card is failing, either the PVR-350 
"Tuner1" or the PVR-350 "S-Video1" or the Firewire STB? I have posted many 
times about this firewire issue and have all the firewire output in another 
email. It is here on Grossman's Mythtv Archive:
