If you can tell me how or point me to information on how to get that
data out of the current /dev/vbi interface, then I'll definitely look
into it.  I spent a few hours this week looking over the vbi code in Myth
to see if there was anything I could key off of but haven't come up with
anything yet.  I haven't messed with /dev/vbi at all before now though,
so I may be missing something.
