Very cool. It would also be nice to support other "input devices"
for the radio (e.g. if I have a D-Link USB FM receiver and a BTTV
card)... PiP would be kinda an academic question though ;)

Maybe there should be a way to designate a different compressor
for each medium. I'm not familiar with NuppleVideo, but if it
doesn't provide much over MP3...
Maybe something like a table that indicates:
Name Src MiscSetup Tuner Encoder
TV /dev/LineIn BTTV: TV BTTV NuppleVideo
FM /dev/LineIn BTTV: FM BTFM Lame
Moxi http://moxifm.com/feed.mp3 Lame
I'm not sure how you could handle all the I/O funkyness, but it
seems like something linux can do with all of its pipeyness.
FWIW, and feel free to shoot them thar idears down ;)
