Phil, just be patient and keep trying.  I know its frustrating, but what
can you do? --- The sad reality is that there are precious few
developers around here and most, if not all, provide assistance on their
free time ... which then cuts into development time...which is also done
on free time.   

Maybe no one, including run-of-the-mill general users, knows or has an
answer to your questions.  Perhaps those who do know the answer, are
busy with other projects and real life, or aren't reading the list
currently. 

The activity/participation, levels on the v4l and dvb lists have dropped
a fair amount, from my perspective, in the recent months ... so please
don't think that you're the only one whose messages have gone unanswered
( there have been many!).

As an alternative, you can also try posting your questions on various
user forums to try to maximize your return.

I have no idea what the source of timecop's resentment is, but it
certainly sounds misplaced.
