No TV with Diamond XtremeTV PVR550 (1 Viewer)

I am having trouble getting TV to work in MediaPortal built from latest CVS sources.

Here's the DirectShow graph that MP builds when I attempt to turn TV on:


Obviously, the above is not right because it does not contain a video renderer.

Looking at my TV card definition I am guessing the reason for that is the absence of video and audio output pin specifications in the interface section.
It is not immediately obvious how to fix this problem because the current capture card definition format requires that all output pins of the pre-defined subgraph must be located on the same filter, however in my case video and audio outputs should come from capture filter, whereas mpeg2 - from encoder filter.

Any suggestions?

  <capturecard commercialname="Diamond XtremeTV PVR550" capturename="Conexant Falcon Video Capture" devid="ven_4444&amp;dev_0016&amp;subsys_0070ff92&amp;rev_01">
    <capabilities tv="true" radio="false" mpeg2="true" mce="true" sw="false" bda="false"/>
      <interface cat="encoder" video="" audio="" mpeg2="0"/>
        <filter cat="tvtuner"  name="Conexant Falcon Tuner"  		checkdevice="true"/>
        <filter cat="tvaudio"  name="Conexant Falcon TvAudio"  		checkdevice="true"/>
        <filter cat="crossbar" name="Conexant Falcon Crossbar" 		checkdevice="true"/>
        <filter cat="capture"  name="Conexant Falcon Video Capture"     checkdevice="true"/>
        <filter cat="encoder"  name="Conexant Falcon Encoder"  		checkdevice="true"/>
        <connection sourcefilter="tvtuner"  sourcepin="1" sinkfilter="tvaudio" sinkpin="0"/>
        <connection sourcefilter="tvtuner"  sourcepin="0" sinkfilter="crossbar" sinkpin="%tvtuner%"/>
        <connection sourcefilter="tvaudio"  sourcepin="0" sinkfilter="crossbar" sinkpin="%audiotuner%"/>
        <connection sourcefilter="crossbar" sourcepin="0" sinkfilter="capture" sinkpin="0"/>
        <connection sourcefilter="capture"  sourcepin="3" sinkfilter="encoder" sinkpin="0"/>
(BTW, I had to fix a couple typos in the above definition, otherwise MP wouldn't recognize my capture card at all).
