Quick scan on google reveils 0xeb1a is Pinnacle. You might ask on multimedia 
list if anyone knows this card. Could be it's accessible as 'tv tuner' or 
similar interface.

I suspect there's gonna be a few requests like this with harddisk space being 
cheap and old home movies hitting the expiring date.

Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
