I really hate doing this because it doesn't answer your question,
but I can't help myself... try TvTime, it's really the best for TV in linux.

*cough* cha right! 25% cpu usage on a 1.2Ghz athlon is good for a tv program?!?!?!?

"window is with view" can you explain tha a little more, i don't understand what's wrong.... you can actualy view it right? the only thing i would suggest offhand is that you're not loading X v4l module (not a kernel module, but an X module) when X loads. in either your XF86COnfgi or xorg.conf, depending on which you are using, there is a Modules section. in there add
Code:
Load    "v4l"
and restart. this will alter the way that X handles v4l inputs, and might do the trick.

tvtime my arse....

It's adjustable for goodness sake.

Average 10% on Athlon 1.6 compared to 6% with MPlayer at same res.
Not too bad.
