HD-PVR driver in Linux updated to support AC3

The development tree for the Hauppauge HD-PVR driver in Linux was recently updated to include AC3 support for the device.

“Adds support for AC3 as audio codec. Only available with firmware released
in August 2008.”

This suggests the new driver/firmware has been released but it is not locateable on Hauppauge web site. It should be immenent though. Looks like it is time to re-compile the driver! Point your Mercurial tools here for a clone.

    It’s not been released to the public yet, but a few have a non-public beta driver to play with.

    They say it will be out this week, but they also said it would be out last week and changed their minds 😉

    Thanks for stopping by Brent. Your comments also echo what I am seeing in the IRC channel for the driver development. Hopefully today!
