AFAIK, tv-in support isn't handled by Xorg. Instead, you have
Video4Linux capture drivers in the kernel. If you card is supported,
you will have a /dev/videoN (where N is some number, starting from 0)
device node for it. Programs that take tv input, like tvtime or
mythtv or mplayer then open this device, read things from it, and show
you the video. Xorg doesn't have anything to do with that.
So, you may want to check out the tv tuner support in the latest
kernels. Also, check out the tvtv project
(http://ivtvdriver.org/index.php/Main_Page) which maintains some other
drivers -- I use their driver for my Hauppauge PVR500 card.
