One of the problem is still to indentify the name of the capture Devices 
and be able to configure them (select TV channel or input source).

There's a Qt GUI in the DrFFMPEG source package that allows capturing on 
Windows using FFMPEG. It has not been added to DrDivX yet. The code is 
using DirectShow in C++.
