Andy,

Thanks for the info.  See below for the data you requested and v4l2-ctl stuff.  As an FYI, I did all of the below over ssh, with X11 forwarding just fine.  

After trying all kinds of mplayer incantations, this at least rendered an empty overlay box.    mplayer tv:// tv=driver=v4l2:input=1:width=320:height=240:device=/dev/video0:freq=67.25 -vo x11

Changing the input number did not change the following output in any way.

Playing tv://.
TV file format detected.
Selected driver: dummy
 name: NULL-TV
 author: alex
Selected input hasn't got a tuner!
open: No such file or directory
[MGA] Couldn't open: /dev/mga_vid

[VO_TDFXFB] Can't open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory.
s3fb: can't open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory
==========================================================================
Opening video decoder: [raw] RAW Uncompressed Video
VDec: vo config request - 320 x 200 (preferred colorspace: Planar YV12)
VDec: using Planar YV12 as output csp (no 0)
Movie-Aspect is undefined - no prescaling applied.
VO: [xv] 320x200 => 320x200 Planar YV12
[VO_XV] Shared memory not supported
Reverting to normal Xv.
[VO_XV] Shared memory not supported
Reverting to normal Xv.
Selected video codec: [rawyv12] vfm: raw (RAW YV12)

############################

Using v4l2-ctl as root to force setting the tuner, standard, and a frequency doesn't improve mplayer's failure to recognize a tuner interface.  As regular user, no changes were applied.... ls -l /dev/video0 gets me crw-rw---- 1 root video 81, 0 2008-07-26 21:10 /dev/video0.  My user is in video.

I'll increase debugging on the kernel modules to see what I get and report back.  If any of the information provided assists resolving the situation, let me know.

Michael

lspci -v gives me the following output.
