I apologize if I am writing to the wrong list, but since the Gatos 
project has merged Xorg, there seems not to be other way to get some 
information or support.

If You know a better address where to ask about Video-In, You are 
welcome to tell me.

I try to get Video-In running on my ThinkPad A31p, which has a Radeon 
VGA device (Radeon RV200 LX).

How do I setup and how do I verify the settings for Video-in?

There is very very much, but very very outdated information out there.

Video-In works in Windows, so the hardware is working.

I succeeded in compiling the Avview application without ffmpeg support 
(should do for just getting a picture?). But I do not get more than a 
"black-screen", regardless the connector I set up in AVView.
