hi, I have read up on input groups and I think I understand that the only time there should be different input groups is when you have competing demands...like and analog and digital tuner on the same card?...In the wiki (https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Setup_Input_Connections) it says that normally, all the input groups should be named 'Generic'.  When I look at my .27current backend, where I have a 2255 dual tuner card, input group 1 is something like'/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and input group 2 is generic.  when i change input group 1 to generic and save, it seems to revert to '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' next time I go to that screen.....

so, am I doing something wrong?  should input group 1 be generic or /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0 ?

thanks for your help
