I have been playing around with compiling V4L (Linux) DVB drivers using a
layer of compatibility code derived from Luigi Rizzo's linux-kmod-compat
port and Hans Petter Selasky's USB stack (in FreeBSD 8/current).
I've had some success getting a dib0700 based USB stick (Hauppauge
WinTV-NOVA-TD-Stick) to work and am in the process of trying to compile
some further V4L driver source (for other USB DVB-T sticks).
If there is a working V4L driver for a USB stick that you want to use, it
may be possible to use this approach to create a FreeBSD driver module.
See http://www.tangobravo.co.uk/v4l-compat for a brief description and
some code that may be used to compile v4l drivers on FreeBSD.
