This sounds to me like you do not have your input groups setup right.  Each
encoder can do digital or analog, but the digital and analog capture devices
for each must be grouped into an input group.  Thus you'd end up with an
input group per encoder, and each will do either analog or digital,
independent of each other.

Is there a solution to getting the HVR-2250 fully working under MythTV? Are

I have been successfully using my HVR-2250 fully since about September 2010,
when I bought it, and send Stephen a couple patches for minor issues in the
analog side of the driver.  It has never given me a problem like you have
mentioned.  I quite regularly record with analog/digital simultaneously (one
on each encoder).
