A bktr based one, because that's what most people have, though saa might
produce a nicer image (and they are much more prevalent on the retailer
shelves these days I think).

Saa driver: purpe.com (or try multimedia/kbtv). It has some problems though,
most notably some tuner types (Philips MK, the one I have) can't find their
(former) frequency back after my box has been shut down (not rebooted but
shut down), and I need to tune it to some channel in Linux first. It's a
known problem, related to signal detection. I'm (slowly) looking into finding
a way to solve this in kbtv.
