Both not supported by FreeBSD. The ATi All-in-Wonder cards are supported to 
some degree by XFree86/xorg drivers (without the need for additional kernel 
driver support) through the xvideo interface, but only very few tv-viewing 
applications support this API (I personally only know xawtv), and usually 
even that support is poor.
