Fedora 20, most devices that can be supported should be supported, but
plenty of devices can't be supported.


"Digital" devices refer to devices which typically tune to a digital
TV standard, like ATSC for North America, DVB for the rest of the
world, ISDB for the rest of the world that doesn't like to be the rest
of the world.

"Analog" devices refer to devices which capture digitizations of an
analog source, like a camera or S-VIDEO output from your VCR.
