I know how that works. I had this thing sitting on my shelf for about a
month and a half not doing a thing before finally having some time this
weekend. It unfortunately consumed the time I'd tentatively set aside
for updating my FC doc, and now I have a whole new setup I'd like to do
a write-up on...

Oh, okay, so its not the ivtv driver, good (well, relatively speaking).

I've heard a few reports of issues with their binary driver, many of
which are fixed in Ivor's driver.

Haven't tried an mpeg2 stream. The main thing I noticed failing was ogg
container rips, but I am not positive what codec was used. I didn't pay
that much attention, I just noticed that all my recent stuff (I finally
settled on a setup I liked in dvd::rip) worked, and some of my
experimental rips failed (along with some stuff from a friend, which I
believe was encoded with divx). I'd have to actually pay more attention
and launch mplayer from the cli to get a better idea of exactly what
does and does not work. I'm positive all my avi container ffmpeg mpeg4
files play back fine (including movies recorded off the air and
edited/transcoded with avidemux2). I'm fairly certain all the xvid
encoded stuff is fine too... No time to mess with it until this weekend
