Both very interesting reads -- cool to see what's happening in other
areas of the chip (the MSP patch almost makes kernel programming look
easy ... ;^) )

But for now, I'll settle for even being able to tune in the TV signal
part; being able to use "internal audio" will be enough to get things
going; I'll be happy to play around with a new MSP sound-chip driver
once the basics are working.

Unable to tune in a TV signal ...
