Hi Mark,

Forgive my ignorance/ newbie-ness, but what do I do with that patch code
below? is there a tutorial or howto or something somewhere that will
introduce me to this. I have done some programming, but nothing of this

Hi Jon,

Not a problem at all, I'm new to this myself, below is what went through and I may not be doing it the right way either.  So if anyone would like to point out what I am doing wrong I would really appreciate it.

The file that I downloaded was called v4l-dvb-2bade2ed7ac8.tar.bz2 which I downloaded from http://linuxtv.org/hg/~stoth/v4l-dvb/archive/tip.tar.bz2, I also saved the patch to the same location as the download.

The patch didn't apply for me, so I manually patched applied the patches and created a new diff that should hopefully work for you also (attached and inline below).  From what I could see the offsets in Stephens patch were a little off for this code snapshot but otherwise it is all good.

I ran the following using the attached diff...

tar -xjf v4l-dvb-2bade2ed7ac8.tar.bz2
cd v4l-dvb-2bade2ed7ac8
patch -p1 < ../Leadtek.Winfast.PxDVR.3200.H.2.diff

Once the patch was applied I was then able to build and install the modules as per the instructions in the INSTALL file.  I ran the following...

make all
sudo make install
