Here's my card:
V-Stream XPERT TV-PVR 878 
(AFAICT more or less the same as KWorld KW-TV878RF);

'pciconf -lv' output:
bktr0 at pci0:13:0:        class=0x040000 card=0x00000000 chip=0x036e109e 
    vendor   = 'Brooktree Corporation'
    device   = 'Bt878 MediaStream Controller'
    class    = multimedia
    subclass = video
none1 at pci0:13:1:        class=0x048000 card=0x00000000 chip=0x0878109e 
    vendor   = 'Brooktree Corporation'
    device   = 'Bt878/Fusion878A Video Capture (Audio Section)'
    class    = multimedia

Since this card has no EEPROM, it's not detected automatically (I tried to add 
it to sys/dev/bktr/bktr_card.c,  patch attached) so I have to set 
in /etc/sysctl.conf (both without and with my patch):
Works perfectly all right in both cases, 'cept for the remote control (under 
Linux, it's handled by LIRC, lirc_gpio module, and not the driver itself).
BTW, does anybody work on porting LIRC drivers to FreeBSD (especially 
lirc_gpio, of course :-)? Any suggestions on how to handle them? I'd love to 
use my remote too.
