Wow! What an informative post! I bought a TV tuner two years ago, when
TV went digital. I spent hours getting it to work. After listening to
5 minutes of TV with mplayer, my Linux box crashed with a kernel panic
of some sort. I haven't tried since then. It's a cheapy USB tuner, but
it's supported by v4l, after loading some extra firmware. I think I'll
dig it out and see if it does any better today.
Unfortunately, the "cable" in this house is AT&T U-verse. It requires a
special box, so I'm not sure that the tuner would work for anything but
