Source: ivtv-utils (1.4.1-2)
Maintainer: Debian MythTV Team
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.14), libgcc1 (>= 1:3.0), libstdc++6 (>= 4.1.1),

Description-en: utilities for use with the ivtv kernel driver
The IVTV project develops a kernel driver for Linux and a driver for
X11 for hardware based on Conexant's CX23415/CX23416 codec chip such
as the Hauppauge PVR 150/250/350/500 models and other supported hardware.
there is also firmware-ivtv and xserver-xorg-video-ivtv. I htink you have
those, but who knows. I would try this way anyway
Try using following to grab the camera
mplayer -fps 10 -tv driver=v4l2:width=640:height=480:device=/dev/video0
-fps in my case 10 is compromise - you can try higher values
note v4l2 ;-)
