Configuring S-Video Input (1 Viewer)

Using MP and PVR-350 tuner card.

I'm trying to map my external siganl source onto the S-Video inout of my Hauppauge PVR-350 card using MP I read some earlier postings about problems with S-Video but the problem is supposed to be resolved.

I've run the setup, gone to TV - Channel Properties - External and set the "Input Via" to SVHS (not sure if this is correct but I've tried CVBS#1, CVBS#2 & RGB as well).

I've also gone to TV - Capture Cards, selected my PVR350, gone to the Audio Mappings tab and tried just about every combination of mapping CVBS#1 to CVBS#1,#2 & #3, mapping CVBS#2 to CVBS#1,#2 & #3, mapping SVHS to SVHS#1,#2 & #3 and mapping RGB to RGB#1,#2 & #3 without any success.

I know that if I map CVBS#1 to CVBS#1, set the input to External and choose CVBS#1 as the source, then this selects the composite input on the PVR-350. But that's as far as I've got. I can't get MP to select the S-Video input as the source of the recording.

I'd appreciate it if somebody could point me in the right direction.

I've got the Hauppauge 500 aswell. I've been able to record from the s-video at one point, but I've must have changed something, because now MP thinks that s-vhs is a scrambled channel. MP says "there is no availeble card for this channel" as its suppose to do when a dvb-sat channel is chosen? Pointers anyone?
