For v4l it needs to be a full-feature card.. that's how 'vdradmin' gets the 
'live tv' picture.

I've done similar work to stream the TV picture to my PDA over wifi :) Here 
are the commandlines I used:

One using v4l:

vlc --noaudio v4l:/dev/video:norm=pal:size=320x240 --sout 
'#transcode{vcodec=mp4v,vb=200}:std{access=http,mux=ogg,url=:1234}'

one using streamdev:

vlc --noaudio http://127.0.0.1:82/PS/511 --sout 
'#transcode{vcodec=mp4v,vb=200,height=240}:std{access=http,mux=ogg,url=:1234}'

I think I was using Pocket VLC 0.7.2 but it might have been 'MVP'

Cheers,
Gavin.
