  That was never my intention... :-)

  I knew ATSC is an american standard for television, but I do not know with which devices it can be received with 
linux. Is it part of v4l or of dvb (or somehow both of them)? Are there patches for vdr which exposes a new kind of 
device or is it an extension of the existing dvbdevice?

  Anyway I would like to claim the source identifier 'V' for pvrinput. Just for the records...
