Given Jarod's previous guide's, I'm sure it'll be
terrific, but he focuses on RPM's for the ease of
setup and upgrading...

You can have multiple Monitor and Device sections, but
if you want X and TV to use the composite output, you
don't need them... Mine is about as trim as you can

The output of lspci -v. :-)

Mine looks like this...

00:0e.0 Multimedia video controller: Internext
Compression Inc iTVC15 MPEG-2 Encoder (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Hauppauge computer works Inc.:

The very first thing is the bus ID 00:0e.0 which in
XF86Config gets translated to BusID "0:0x0e:0".  

I'm not sure the importance of this though, as I think
I've run it without this line... I could be
remembering wrong though, it's been a while since I
set this up.
