I've been working on a 3 week old tree you gave me from thadathil.net.
Thanks for this. I've added support for a new S2 demod and tuner (for
the WinTV-HVR4000). I'd like to get the entire tree up on linuxtv.org,
at least people can comment.
I sense a level of frustration in your comments. Let me ask, in your
view what's the current position with multiprotocol? Is the ML close to
agreeing the general frontend ops/core changes? The thread has gone cold.
In the mean time, from my perspective, commercial pressure to release
'half baked' drivers and/or core framework changes (to customers in
vertical markets) leave me in a difficult position. I don't want to do
that. It's a horrible scenario. Neither do I want to be seen as pushing
a commercial agenda... simply because I'm not. I want what's best for
Linux, make no mistake about that.
I'm happy to hold off my vertical customers until the ML has a workable
solution and has some kind of long term future... except we don't seem
to be discussing/planning or moving ahead with any multiprotocol
Now I'm frustrated.
Johannes, any comments in terms of multiprotocol generally?
How do we get this project back on the rails?
