Sorry, before I read the next 150 Mails, here my answer:
First, the NEXUS is no capture card but a ~1.2GHz Tuner with a hardware
This puppy is controled (afaik) via iic/smb.
This card is definitively not supported under FreeBSD (has nothing todo
with the brooktree chipset, althoug the control commands could be the
same; Phillips iic standard).
There is a project called linuxtv.org. They wrote a driver for the Linux
kernel, but I don't exactly know if it is compliant to the TechnoTrend
API or someting different (but they supply the ARM core on the card with
the original TechnoTrend Firmware).
There's also a project called VDR (http://www.cadsoft.de/vdr/) which
provides excellent applications for this card (no NOVA etc. support).
I have a HTPC with this card running on (*blameonme*) M$, but I'm no
coder so for me it's impossible to do any FreeBSD port of the driver
(which is basic for VDR).
I'd highly appreciate any activity in that environment.
