I've similar configuration but I use tvtime patched by Markus
Rechberger to support HVR's audio directly. Tvtime gives better video
quality and requires less cpu.

It can be found here:


I don't know if the changes were pushed upstream (it seems that the
development of tvtime stopped in 2005).

> mplayer -vo xv tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:alsa:immediatemode=0:adevice=hw.1,0:norm=ntsc:chanlist=us-cable:channel=3
> This gives me a simple window tuned to NTSC channel three.  I change the channel on my cable box and change the volume with either the computer or cable box or both.
