xawtv -hwscan
This is xawtv-3.95, running on FreeBSD/i386 (6.2-PRERELEASE)
looking for available devices
port 57-88
    type : Xvideo, image scaler
    name : NV Video Blitter

/dev/bktr0: OK                          [ -device /dev/bktr0 ]
    type : bktr
    flags: overlay capture tuner

When I launched xawtv...

$xawtv -nogl -xv -xvport 88

I only got black screen. :-(
