You should be able to use almost any capture program you like. The driver
will attach to both device sets, video and dvb. If its a dvb only card,
there will just be no tuner and the application might complain about this.
You can even use both parallel, there only is the restriction that the
planar formats don't work for a technical reason. This occurs with
mplayer but as far as i remember, there is a way to work around it.

Good luck
