Default TV.


I broke the antenna mount off my tv card (moving network cables).
Teevee is about the only reason I dual boot Windows.
I would much rather write shell scripts during commercials than batch files. :]
Opportunity presents itself to buy a new tv card - one with an OpenBSD driver.

According to the OpenBSD/i386 page, the only driver available is the Brooktree (bktr).

The list looks pretty much the same last time I went shopping. :]
I had a look at CVS and apart from general tidy up there hasn't been much done to the driver since it arrived five years ago.

Are there any other drivers for tv on OpenBSD?
Does Brooktree (or any other driver) do digital tv?

I want digital and analogue.
Would I be better off buying a Tivo and using a capture card?
I expect if I do that I will still be in square one - finding a capture card supported by OpenBSD which I suppose will mean Brooktree. :]

Best wishes.
