I ran an analog tv card (bttv-module) for some time in a beige G3
there were no problems with this card. If I rember right is was an old
Formac Pro TV card. If you want to record analog tv you need a really
fast cpu. I never tried this. It is also possible to run a DVB card
with linux-ppc. You can use every kind of DVB like -S, -T and -C. And
you can record this on a slow cpu because it is native mpeg2.
This is a good starting-point for DVB:
and this one is for analog tv cards:
BTW. DVB works without a problem with kernel 2.4 on ppc but kernel 2.6
panics or just freezes with my DVB card when I want to get the video on
my monitor. Look into the mail archive for somethings about DVB and
Formac Pro TV
