Watching analog TV, no problem. It autodetects card=60 and it is working very 
well. I am using kdetv. Only thing is, that I have to use sox to listen to 
the sound:

sox -c 2 -s -w -r 32000 -t ossdsp /dev/dsp1 -t ossdsp -w -r 32000 /dev/dsp

but thats stuff I can live with. I didn't test baseband inputs yet, but I can 
if you want. Anything I need to consider when trying?
