Subjectbttv-driver: help required with new card
Hello,

I have a framegrabber to work with linux (2.4.18). It's a BT878
device and I have a lot of questions :(

a) It does not use the muxsel-bits in BT848_IFORM but some bits in
BT848_GPIO_DATA to select video-input---so seems to be a quite
unusual device.

Should I make switch(btv->type) statments in bt848_muxsel?

b) several registers have to be initialised to other values then
usual, to make the card work.

At the moment I'm doing this in bt848_muxsel, but I would like to
move to a place where it is not executed every time I switch input
Is init_bt848 the right place?

(The framegrabber should generate sync-signals and provide them to
the cameras allowing to switch between cameras in 40ms, so
initializing the chips every time would not work)

c) It does not identify with PCI_SUBSYSTEM_ID/PCI_SUBSYSTEM_VENDOR_ID
(gives 0xffff). Any other way to autodetect it?

d) Who is the bttv-maintainer?!

MfG
bmg
