You didn't waste any of your time... The Kconfig stuff will be
necessary eventually, when the card goes into -mm. Anyhow, I'm the new
guy... just because I say something doesn't mean that I am necessarily
correct.... I just think I am ;-) I've been trying to act rather
quickly on your posts for obvious selfish reasons (to support my own
lgdt3302) :-) ... That's why I did all this... Who knows... maybe I am
Recent policy prefers that changes get to cvs first before going into
-mm ... In order to make that happen, I had to make the patch apply
against current video4linux... I bet we did some double-work here. I
figured that I would post the patch on the list so it's all nice and
ready, and then speak to the other developers at some point in irc (or
over email), make a decision, and then commit it to cvs...
Meanwhile, I personally don't know much about DVB at all.... and I'm a
night owl -- so I thought I'd take a look and give my two cents. I bet
you that when the other developers see this thread tomorrow they will
tell us that the stuff must go into DVB ... Honestly, I dont have a
clue about that stuff. However, I do know that the or51132 and cx22702
are currently in v4l. Since this is a cx88 card, I personally I believe
that the lgdt3302 can live in v4l for a bit until we figure out how to
bridge between v4l and dvb. ... but that is just my opinion.
Also, I'm wondering if you could do me a favor... I am hoping to resolve
an issue with regards to improper HUE settings with cx88 cards... When
you are watching analog tv with your board, do you have to adjust the
picture settings in order to get a decent picture? Many cx88 boards
require that the hue be set to 0% or 100% (in tvtime) in order to get
realistic colors.... We are collecting information on the v4l wiki -
http://linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/Hue_Saturation_Brightness - could
you please add your settings to the list, or at least email them to me
so that I can add them? Even if your settings work correctly
out-of-the-box, I need to know that information as well... I have an
easy way to fix this problem, but I just want to make sure that I'm not
breaking other cards in the process.
