#7991 closed patch (fixed)

WinTV USB support

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: danielk
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.23
Component: MythTV - Recording Version: 0.22-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: WinTV
Cc: Ticket locked: no


WinTV USB care works fine under mplayer but not in mythtv. I figured out that the video buffer count is 3 for this card but in mythtv the minimum buffer size seems to be 5. Reducing the minimum size to 3, my WinTV USB works fine now.

This patch is not critical since all card which worked before (have more than 5 buffers) will still work.

See attached patch.

(In [23384]) Closes #7991. Implement patch in a slightly different way. Now just raises an informational if the number of buffers we get back is less than what we requested.
