Hm I am not sure about this part... at least in my part of the world,
(Central Europe) it is becoming harder to find a Brooktree based TV
card, revent models use a Philips chipset which has better picture
quality but is AFAIK not supported by FreeBSD... so you have to be extra
careful when buying.
Just my HUF 0.02...
