Steve,

Thanks - that makes sense.

I also noticed that if I setup one of the vdic pipelines first then
went back after a 'media-ctl -r' and setup the example that failed it
no longer failed. I'm thinking that this is because 'media-ctl -r'
make reset all the links but does not reset all the V4L2 formats on
pads?

hmmm... I don't quite follow this statement. It sounds like the
example would only be correct if you were setting 'field:alternate'
but the example sets 'field:seq-bt' instead.

I wonder if you should add some verbiage explaining the difference in
format (resolution specifically) between the input and output pads
and/or change the example to set the output pad format so people don't
run into what I did trying to follow the example.
