Reasons I'd like to keep both lists going:
1. My subscription requests to linux-media have yielded nothing.
Anything broken with the
2. I agree with another poster: I only care about broadcast and cable
video, both analog and
digital. I eventually hope to help get my "AnyTV AUTV002 USB ATSC/QAM
Tuner Stick" supported by
V4L, and then use it in a MythTV system. I'd prefer a list that
focuses on such devices and
systems, if possible. Which seems to match the mission of linux-dvb!
The general issue of multi-posting seems typical of list
forking/merging/moving, and should
settle down as the intent of each of the lists in the group of lists
becomes better established
I have not yet subscribed to the new mailing list as there appears to be
no "digest" option. I do not want 100's of emails filling up my inbox, I
prefer it all to be condensed down into a managable amount of emails.
Before any says that I should have a filter or (insert some other
similiar feature) to handle the emails. This is not an option for me.
