[mythtv-users] pcHDTV-5500 Correct Capture Card Configuration

I have a new Myth backend with a single pcHDTV-5500 tuner installed, and I am
having a problem.

Per the MythTV wiki page for the 5500, I have configured it as a DVB card. After
doing so, I am easily able to tune all of my available digital channels coming
in on my QAM-256 cable. However, I have seen multiple references to my tuner's
"analog settings", even a mention of an "analog button". I see no such button in
the myth backend setup capture card screen or anywhere else, for that matter.

I was able to add the analog tuner as a second capture card and configure it as
v4l, but I don't think that is correct (how would myth know that both tuners are
the same card, and only one can be used at a time?).

In the myth-setup capture card setup, I set the card type to "DVB DTV capture
card (v3.x)" and it then detects DVB Device number 0 and the frontend ID as
"DViCO v2 or Air2PC v3 or pcHDTV HD-5500 Subtype: ATSC". However, with that
setting I see no "analog options" or "analog button" or anything of the sort.
You can see a screen-snap of my setup screen here:


See, no "analog" anything.

Am I simply looking in the wrong place, or have I done something fundamentally

Forgive the noob...this is my first MythTV endeavor.

Thanks in advance for any insight you may be able to offer.
