Not good. I downloaded a copy of the mythtv-dev mailing list archives
and searched for info on this topic... shoulda done that before I
ordered my AIW 7500. It sounds like this is hopeless* in the short term
given the immaturity of the v4l driver for this card. Too bad; at $129
it looked like a very nice solution for capture and tv-out. Now it's
going on eBay, and I've got to shell out for an NVidia card with TV Out,
plus the Hauppage WinTV. Sigh.

(*) I'd love to be proven wrong, see below

Harondel, if you wouldn't mind giving that ATI card a try and report
your results here, I'd appreciate it!
