Ah. Well, in most cases for boards that support the MPEG encoder it's
actually easier to get the MPEG encoder working than the raw capture.
Hence, if you look at which products in the PCI/PCIe category have an
MPEG encoder, if analog claims to be supported it's probably through
the MPEG encoder rather than raw capture. The vast majority of the
USB capture devices are raw analog only (one notable exception is the
I've been thinking for a while about breaking that table out to such
that MPEG encoded analog is separate from raw analog. Just never got
around to it.
