I have attached the patch (again, the diff is from the
CURRENT source files) which should enable you to change
the channels (I think it won't work on NTSC).

The problems i've noticed so far:
Some channels that look good in Linux (tvtime) look snowy
or washed out in bktr (fxtv). The frequencies sent to the
tuner are a little bit off from the tvtime frequencies,
so you might need a program which has a manual fine tune
option. Or maybe you could set the correct freq. set
somewhere (by sysctl maybe, I didn't have time to look at

Sometimes there are no channels at all, in Linux or in
FreeBSD, and switching the computer off and on helped.

Please tell me if you had any problems.

PS. I currently don't have much time to work on this,
so I'll get back to it in a month or so.
