Description

There is already a closed ticket for this but as I am not able to reopen it I post it here:

http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/5744

I still got the issue and applying the diff (or to be exact the changes from the diff) everything works fine.

#5744 was closed as wontfix, not invalid, for this reason:

"This looks like a workaround for broken V4L drivers, should be fixed upstream first, then we can add a workaround for the specific broken driver with version check. That way the hack can easily be removed when all major distros have been shipping non-broken drivers sufficiently long."

So basically, the desire is to avoid having to apply hacks for broken drivers and instead get the drivers themselves fixed.

It does not look like the issue will be fixed in the driver

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14116

So I have a problem between two open source projects. For one project there is a fix that works for the other there is none and there's no intention for fixing it there.

As I don't have the necessary knowledge to fix the drivers I'm stuck in the middle.

I guess for now I will have to continue patching mythtv and if stick with an old version of mythtv if there are too many changes in mythtv.

:(
