As the Archos 101IT has a full size USB port, why shouldn't we plug a dvb-t stick in and watch tv? (without internet!)

For more information see Roadmap

Any comments / suggestions?

After analyzing the archos froyo source package I've found out that they already have a package for the linuxtv-dvb-apps project but disabled it This makes building a lot easier, as I don't have to write my own configs and makefiles

I updated it to the newest HEAD checkout of linuxtv-dvb-apps and then I've wrote some script which make the build process so much easier (unpack one tar archive, copy the froyo release package into same folder and run a script..)

I'm currently testing the build process and try to minimalize it (for fixing and upgrading, in the end I only have to build it once)

I don't know if power could be an issue at all.
Is the HVR-950Q supported by linux kernel?
