Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Just about any app can be compiled as 64bit but may depend on some dependencies. But first need to make sure the USB device can be seen and may require addtional module to work. posting info from /sbin/lsusb may generate info on the USB device that can be used to search here or on google for required modules.

The USB ports work for USB Flash Drives. So, they should work for this USB TV BOX, shouldn't them?
Another thing, what programs are there to capture video? I've scroogled it, but I couldn't understand what programs are there that do that.
vlc, mplayer, mythtv, xawtv, and several others can interact with a supported tv card, or webcam.
You might be surprised about the support. There's a number of drivers, in various places. So if one doesn't work, try some of the others. Many devices across several brands still share similar guts / chipsets / drivers.
Always check freshmeat.net for supporting software. Not to imply success. And with certain things you can only get there from here by compiling source. And certain HD content requires a hefty CPU. As multi-threading is not yet supported on most codecs. And 64 bit only gets you so far, mostly access to large amounts of ram.
Even with the source sites, it still might be quicker to google. linuxtv.org isn't very organized IMO. working cards are listed according to agenda, not alphabetically, pciids, usbids, or other logical choices. And check back often (changelogs), as it may not be supported today, but it might just be tomorrow.
