More progress...

So you might look at the above picture and think, "What's the big deal? Devin is just watching TV". Except in this case it is the first time I actually got the hardware working under Linux. Sure the picture is crappy, but it's not any worse then what I get with the same rabbit ears hooked up to my regular television. Oh yeah, and there's no audio. But who needs audio when you have the physical comedy of Scrubs? On the upside, it's only using 4% of the CPU on my computer, which is considerably better than what I was getting with my MythTV rig (but in this case it's also a much better video card).

Next stop: Over the air HD!
