Hehe, so I'm not the only one who didn't found useful to spend money o
a tv set :)

I just discovered how to make mplayer work with my card, i.e.
mplayer -tv driver=bsdbt848:device=/dev/vbi:input=1:norm=PAL:chanlist=europe-east:audioid=1 tv://S23
will play BBCWorld

Strangely input should be 0 according to docs bu that gives a blue

BTW, how can one write the channel list in mplayer's conf file ?

Please do. I start looking in the sources, both motv and bktr, but I'm
still missing something (actually I know how to force audio source
modifying bktr sources, which "strangely" are easier to understand but
that isn't the right solution).

This will be twice useful as I'm working on a port for XdTV, which
doesn't support setting the audio source at all, and this is the last
big thing to fix.
