OK, it's worked for a while now (quite nicely, though my tuner is
suddenly having quality issues with the Coax, svideo works fine
(didn't work before, my cable box outputs svid, so I'm not terribly

However, I get an odd issue, I doubt it's the driver though
if cat (or dd) /dev/cxm and pipe it to ffmpeg, while at the console,
it works fine. If I do so from another machine over X, it seems to
either send the output to the console and not ffmpeg, or send it to
both, either way it destroys my console pretty quickly.

Note: I've only tried that from a windows machine with Cygwin's SSH
(-YCX options), I'll try from a BSD machine at some point.
