This is a patch wich creates a name fiel in the capture card setup.
You need to add the field displayname as varchar(255) to your database.

I'm now looking to implement the display of this name in the tv_play.cpp
The function UpdateOSDInput need to be changed.
But this I can firstly look at evening, because I'm at work at the moment!

    I've thought about this a few times too and think it is a good 
idea.  I only have 2 tuners but I can never remember if #1 is 
/dev/video0 or /dev/video1.
