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.


cx18 64-bit OS driver issues

I am adding HVR-1600 cards to my SageTV server. Using the latest drivers pulled from the v4l-dvb mercurial I am seeing issues with both analog capture via svideo and with QAM capturing. Older cx18-ivtv drivers work fine, but have been left behind in favor of v4l drivers.
