I have just installed FreeBSD 4.11 with the intention of not only
creating a file server but to allow for video streaming and recording

Lots of forums suggest many options to achieve this however to save
alot of time with untested and not always proven methods. Could you
please advise me if this indeed possible and secondly if you could
recommend any possible tv cards compatible with your OS
I look forward to any help or assistance that you may offer.
If the main purpose of your box is to be a PVR, I suggest going with a
Linux distribution and using MythTV (http://www.mythtv.org). While I am
a fan of FreeBSD as a web/mail/etc. server, it did not meet my needs
when attempting to build a PVR. I found the Gentoo Linux distribution
most comfortable for me because it uses a "portage" system similar to
the "ports" system of FreeBSD. Others I tried were package based and
didn't always support my hardware.
Anyway, my two cents,
Be a Great Magician!
