Just got Myth installed and working with HDHomeRun on another box for two family members.
They have a VCR, yes a VCR with lots of old movies and home movies.
Plus, an old Hauppauge PVR-350 tuner card lying around.

I saw the warning on the wiki ...
"Warning: The Hauppauge PVR-350 mpeg2 hardware decoder (playback) is no longer supported since version 0.23 (see http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/22845 ). With MythTV 0.23 and later, the ivtv Xorg/Xv driver is required for TV output using this card."

So I installed the ivtv Xorg/Xv driver.
Connected the VCR coax output to the input of the 350 tuner.
The RF modulator on the VCR is set to channel 4.

In the myth backend config:
Video device: /dev/video0
____Probed info: Hauppauge WinTV PVR-350 [ivtv]
____Default input: Tuner 1
Video source name: h350t1
____Listings grabber: No grabber
____Channel frequency table: try-all
Capture device: [MPEG:/dev/video0]
____Input: Tuner 1
____Display Name: DNh350t1
____Video source: h350t1
____External channel change command:
____Preset tuner to channel:

The channel scan produces no new channels, 0 channels.

We just need the Hauppauge 350 tuner card to pick up channel 4.
How would you do that?
