Please don't tell me this is a "WIntuner" (my winmodem memories keep hunting me...:-)

| However, upon launching xawtv, I got these:
| $xawtv
| This is xawtv-3.95, running on FreeBSD/i386 (6.2-PRERELEASE)
| Warning: Cannot convert string
| "-*-ledfixed-medium-r-*--39-*-*-*-c-*-*-*" to type FontStruct
| Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

This isn't anything to do with your tuner card.

It's to do with trying to draw onto an OpenGL surface. You need GLX support
for your gfx card in X. Try configuring xawtv not to use GLX/OpenGL and to
use XV instead, and see if that gets you any further.
