Nice, I saw this card in the store recently and was thinking it'd be
nice to get this card running on FreeBSd. :)  Might just have to go buy

Any work on integrating it with one of the many PVR programs out there?

Yeh, And I did say most.. :)  I was thinking that if the card does
something special with sound, like integrate it into a codec stream,
then the sound capture could/should? be set as a parameter of that
device that does the integration...  Because I assume that the card
can only captuer sound as part of the mpeg codec stream? (going to
check the specs).

Do people think that sound should be brought under it's umbrela?
I don't want to delay it too much by expanding the scope..  Just getting
video is going to be difficult enough..
