Basicly, you insmod the driver, and you should see some files in
/proc/sys/dev/sensors/bt869*/ .  Then, you put your X-server in a NTSC
resolution, and then set the appropriate values in the files in the
directory noted above (e.g. "echo 0 > colorbars", and set ntsc/pal,
resolution, etc.).  Check the output.  If nessesary, you may need to
select the appropriate output port if you don't get anything.  Some
modifications to the driver were recently submitted to CVS (see our
download page for instruction on CVS), so you might try that.

Good luck!
