[mythtv-users] Setting up DVB and Analog tuner

Hi all,

I've read through the HOWTOs and documentation on the mythtv site about 
setting up tuner cards, but I'm struggling to set up my particular 

I have a dual tuner Nova-T 500 in one pci slot and a hauppauge wintv 150 
in the other. I have set up a video source called UK for the first card, 
and can watch tv on that without a problem, recording two shows at once 
works fine.

I add another video source called "Analog", then add the other tuner 
card with /dev/video0 as its input. I get it to scan for the channels on 
that tuner and it finds them seemingly without a problem, and sets up 
channels in the channel list. My ultimate aim here is to watch my old 
VCR on the analog tuner.

However, if I try to watch the channels found when I did the scan on the 
analog tuner, I get a black screen for about 30 seconds, then the 
frontend goes back to the main menu. I can use other tv programs to 
access /dev/video0.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong! Can anyone point me to a guide that 
might help me, or do you have a similar setup and can tell me where I'm 
going wrong?
