Hi, Tony,

An input group contains devices that cannot be used at the same time. In the example of both an analog and digital tuner on the same card, they should be in the same group because you can tune only one of them at the same time.

In your dual tuner card, which can use its tuners simultaneously without problem, each tuner could be either in the Generic input group or the one created specifically for its adapter , i.e. '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0'.

Best regards,

Θέμα: [mythtv-users] help with input groups

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
