Since you didn't mention that you have cable or satellite, I'm  
assuming you are getting your analog television over the air. Be aware  
that if you're in the US these broadcasts will go away in February and  
you'll get a bunch of static from your analog cards.

> Should I have one video source with both analog and digital channels?

No. The way you have your video sources set up is correct. When you  
assign a video source to an input connection, you are telling MythTV  
that the input connection is capable of using every channel in that  
Video Source.

Yes. You need to make sure the Analog and Digital inputs on the 5500  
are in the same group so MythTV knows it can only use one at a time.
