I proposed a patch last week which gives users a switch for the drivers, but
have not heard any response. Also, you can use mplayer to get the firmware into
NTSC mode before you start VDR. The driver patch just prevents the firmware from
jumping to PAL once it gets an initial lock onto a NTSC signal.  It would sure
be nice thought to have two versions of the FW.. one that defaults directly to NTSC.
