Description

After upgrading to MythTV-0.21, the "Analog Options" button is missing. According to the following thread, http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/324893?search_string=0.21%20analog%20options%20dvb;#324893 configuring the analog and digital portions as two different cards works.

Here is a patch:

So is the official consensus to set up the card as 2 separate capture cards. If so, do we need to use input groups to ensure that the card does not try to record off of both inputs?

is there a location that has the setup laid out?

Please, use svn diff > file.patch and upload it. In ticket patches like that are a pain in the ass...

Looks like the mythtv documentation needs to be updated accordingly as well as it currently states:

NOTE: If you have a dual digital/analog card, such as the pcHDTV cards and some DViCO cards, then you should not configure this as two separate cards. Configure the digital portion as a DVB card, then click on the "Analog Options" button within the DVB configuration panel for the card and configure the analog portion of the card there.

You can see this section here: http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-9.html#ss9.1

How can I go about getting that updated (I'd think it should say something about pre-0.21 vs 0.21)? I have no familiarity with updating the actual mythtv installation documentation...

I generated the attached file "howto.patch" using "svg diff mythtv-HOWTO > howto.patch". Sorry about the inline patch. I did not realize it would get mangled.

(In [23702]) Fixes #5182. Update documentation to note that hybrid cards should be set up as two devices. Remove reference to an option that no longer exists.
