ATI, TV cards and compiz

Just to let you know. ATI closed source drivers and TV cards show an inherent problem: if you want to have eye-candy and you want to use Compiz, you will not be able to watch TV over a Pinnacle TV card (which is not because of Pinnacle, but because of the funny people at ATI writing drivers either allowing for video overlay or for compositing...). But who needs the useful eye-candy of Compiz anyway, regarding all the great television programs we have here... *cough*

By the way: this problem unfortunately is distri-independent...
