    Great to see some video capture capabilities comming to OpenBSD (or just BSD in general). The only TV capture driver I found was FXTV, which only works on older, cheap cards.

      xawtv works very well with OpenBSD, actually way better than fxtv.

        openbsd-based security camera based on frame differentials. why not use obsd to help your physical security as well as your net security?
        or, use a cam and a lavalamp to get REALLY random numbers (

        "This driver finally makes it possible for OpenBSD users to benefit from one-way satellite data services"

        DATA SERVICES != video capture in my world. I'm guessing this is more for DirectPC like offerings (well since it's one way I guess it rules out Starband and ilk).
