Hi,

I was just wondering if anybody had time to check the 2 patches I posted a couple of weeks ago.

Both patches are about DMX_SET_BUFFER_SIZE

1) Patch number 1 is to fix a bug when shrinking the demux buffer. This bug causes the kernel to
crash completely

2) The second patch is about the implementation of the ioctl DMX_SET_BUFFER_SIZE for the dvr.
The ioctl call is currently available but not implemented.
Currently the default is 192522 which lasts only about 1 sec when saving the whole TS.

http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2008-March/024840.html

Is it possible for the maintainers of the dvb-core (btw, who are they exactly?) to check them?

Looking forward to receiving feedbacks.

Andrea
