Just now (while rebuilding the system) I saw a complaint in the logs
about the videosource not being connected to a card. This could be the
reason for not seeing EPG/EIT.

So I have:

1 DVB-T card with currently 7 virtual tuners.
Attached to the card is a tvgids.nl videosource using tv_grab_nl as grabber.

Then there is the videosource which I called digitenne (yes, the EPG
comes in via the air).
As it looks I cannot attch that videosource to the same card. Real nor

The cardinput table has a column with sourceid, but if I change taht one
MythTV will complain some more.

So can it be done?
2 videosources on one physical card and with virtual tuners?

How is it supposed to be done?
Channels also link to the videosource.
So why the double reference?

Or what am I missing?
