No, as it probably needs kernel modules (drivers). The linux kernel modules won't work. You're better off looking for a card that's supported by fbsd natively. I know some of the old Hauppauge WinTV cards (based on bt848) work. I've also seen a few TV card drivers in the ports tree.

It is reliable use of this driver?
I have a tv tunner with a chip saa7134 and when i probe the driver kbtv2 the tunner staying "useless", that this is the reason I am somewhat in doubt prove whether or not the driver.

I've got a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR 1300 up and running with /usr/ports/multimedia/cx88 driver. Have written a small HowTo in bsdforen.de

http://wiki.bsdforen.de/howto/dvb-t_karte_hauppauge_wintv-hvr_1300

In German language but translation into Englisch would be no big thing.

Can scan DVB-T channels, can capture DVB-T into file and view afterwards, and can forward via UDP to mplayer.

But the problem here is that there is no common standard interface for DVB in FreeBSD. Viewer as Kaffeine expect devices in the Linux way, and the few existing drivers do all their own thing.

I plan to finish my own DVB driver
and to add new DVB interface
will not have anything to do with linux-dvb-api interface
