How to add Astro Feed into MythTV via Composite (Video/Audio Input)

I was unable to get clear reception if Free Air Station (TV3) ..
After tried with few type of antenna and booster ,eventually I had to opt to Astro.

Luckily got previous installed Astro Dish installed at my new home..
so I just borrowed a decoder from my mates for this few days..

First I make sure these few things got connected :

1. From Satellite Dish to Astro Decoder box.
2. From Astro Decoder Box to TV Cards (PVR150) Video/Audio Input .

.. then

using root.

“service mythtvbackend stop”

then run

Get to the first screen and the rest of setting as below :
( Change the default from “Tuner 1” to “Composite 1”)
Somehow changing this on-the-fly while switching channel on same card.. doesn’t work



Then need to assign the input the video source.


then need to append channel if new* ..
else it will just work.. if you’re replacing the existing video source ( with same name )


so ..after that can have better reception such as this ..


p/s : .. going to add a set-top box to my wish list.. !

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform
    you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog
    in the near future but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m
    looking for something unique. P.S Apologies
    for being off-topic but I had to ask!
