[MPlayer-users] TV Capture

Works for me, but only with bt878 analog audio device (modprobe btaudio gives you new
soundcard), not with digital one (but none program I tried worked with this one...)

you must specify this btaudio soundcard (for me it is /dev/dsp2) in -tv options of mencoder

and I never played with tuning and stuff - I find the program to capture using xawtv, quit it
and then I launch mencoder to capture what was already selected (and because I still
don't have v4l2 I can't see what I capture... )

and I never tried it with direct tvcard-soundcard cable connection, but from my experiences
(ATI TV Wonder VE) if there is cable connected to audio output of tvcard this 'internal
soundcard' outputs only noise, I don't know why :-(
