Hi,

Its easy to get a snapshot via your browser:

http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb?cmd=summary;style=gitweb

Then click on "tree" in line 2

And on the next page click on bz2.

or take that little script:

#!/bin/sh
TMP_FILE="/tmp/~v4l-dvb"
rm $TMP_FILE > /dev/null 2>&1
wget -O $TMP_FILE "http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb?cmd=summary;style=gitweb"
NEXT_URL=$(cat $TMP_FILE |sed -e "s/</\n/g" | grep -m 1 "?cmd=manifest;" | cut -f 2 -d "\"")
rm $TMP_FILE > /dev/null 2>&1
wget -O $TMP_FILE "http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb$NEXT_URL"
NEXT_URL=$(cat $TMP_FILE |sed -e "s/</\n/g" |grep -m 1 "type=bz2" | cut -f 2 -d "\"")
DT=$(date +%y%m%d)
wget -O ./v4l-dvb_$DT.tar.bz2 "http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb$NEXT_URL"
