Ok so there is a progress with as I see, but we don't know what's your sound
device related to the card, so that's why it fails. There is a slight
difference how mplayer and mencoder handle the sound devices. I don't have
a bt848 card, so I'm not sure if it's working in alsa or in the oss
emulation. Try this one

mencoder -tv
     -oac mp3lame -lameopts cbr:br=64 \
     -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=900:autoaspect=1 \
     -vf  scale,pp=lb -o output.avi tv://<CHANNEL>

If it's not working, please post feedback again and also the output of the

ls /dev/dsp*


ls /dev/snd/


cat /proc/asound/devices


cat /proc/asound/oss/devices


lsmod | grep snd
