Has anyone got Analog Capture working within MythTV , namely using the 
V4L devices (eg Composite1 input), I have connected my  TransACT STB to 
my DVB-T Composite input , I get a picture but the image is "blocky" and 
is obviously being encoded incorrectly , I'm wondering if anyone has 
figured out this bit.
Perhaps its a setting somewhere or Myth doesn't work with these devices 
as yet.

Note I can get a good image using TVTime app that came with FC4, so I 
know its a MythTV issue not V4L.

Note my backend.log contains the following but I don't know if this is

2006-08-27 08:59:14.848 Please go into the TV Settings, Recording 
Profiles     and
