    mplayer tv://3 -tv device=/dev/video-tv

(for video coming in on channel 3 of the TV card, driver in
/dev/video-tv,) and:

    amixer -c 0 sset Capture '72%,72%' cap
    amixer -c 0 sset 'Input Source' Line
    amixer -c 0 sset PCM '74%,74%' unmute
    amixer -c 0 sset Line '74%,74%' unmute

else, piddle with pulseaudio(1).

BTW, for a WinTV card, 38101, lspci(1):

    Multimedia video controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Video Capture (rev 11)
