OK, I start to config the backend this way:

Capture cards: http://i50.tinypic.com/opjpi.png
Adapter0 config: http://i47.tinypic.com/168aeqc.jpg
Adapter0 recordings: http://i45.tinypic.com/acwdp1.png
Adapter0 config: http://i47.tinypic.com/35jl2c7.png
Adapter0 recordings: http://i48.tinypic.com/j9lshu.png

And that is what I have on the fronted: http://i48.tinypic.com/es3vae.png

I wait some hours but there is not EIT info, it works well on 0.22 version.

Thanks for all!
