Ahem ... they may have support, but the applications do/did *not* work
properly with my irdeto CAM.

I know this because of the extensive patching that was required to
make them work!

But I don't have any compile problems and I haven't applied a patch
multiple times ... what exactly is the revelance?

I also forgot to mention that several of the linuxtv apps have other problems.
For example, the szap program when running with -r option only
ever delivers audio output via the dvr0 device because it stupidly sets
video and audio pes filters on the same file descriptor!
