FWIW, I just tested this beta on my FreeBSD 6.3-stable / amd64:
root at kg-quiet# uname -a
FreeBSD kg-quiet.kg4.no 6.3-STABLE FreeBSD 6.3-STABLE #20: Thu Jan 24
00:42:47 CET 2008     root at kg-quiet.kg4.no:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/QUIET

I have loaded the iic and saa module, set permissions etc. The module
Feb 21 21:50:31 kg-quiet kernel: saa0: <Philips SAA7134 AV broadcast
decoder> mem 0xfddff000-0xfddff3ff irq 21 at device 1.0 on pci2 Feb 21
decoder> 21:50:31 kg-quiet kernel: iicbus0: <SAA713x I2C Controller> on
decoder> saa0
Feb 21 21:50:31 kg-quiet kernel: iic0: <I2C generic I/O> on iicbus0

I also get these messages in /var/log/messages:
Feb 21 21:51:23 kg-quiet kernel: iicbus0: START: bus error (status 0x9 loop:12)
Feb 21 21:51:23 kg-quiet kernel: iicbus0: START: bus error (status 0x9 loop:12)
Feb 21 21:51:23 kg-quiet kernel: WARNING pid 24151 (python): ioctl sign-extension ioctl ffffffffc0044d00

One thing puzzles me: where is the "channels" button in the gui?
I have a "camera" button, but no channels button. The gui says that the card is a Pinnacle PCTV Stereo.
actually, when I select Hardware, Info, it says this:
0x1131  Philips Semiconductors
0x7134  Philips SAA7134 AV broadcast decoder
0x11bd  Pinnacle Systems Inc
0x002b  PCTV Stereo
