Hi all,

I've created a patchset for capturing MPEG2-TS and HDV from FireWire
link using fwcontrol. It supports auto-detection of DV and MPEG2-TS
when using -R flag. Patches are available for 5.x (reported to
work under 4.x as well) and 6.x (I don't know if that's gonna work
under -CURRENT). Basic idea for this patch was to be able to read
HDV video from cameras like SONY HVR-Z1E or HDR-FX1, which are now
becomming pretty affordable.

for 5.x: http://sitola.fi.muni.cz/~hopet/HDV/fwcontrol.patch
for 6.x: http://sitola.fi.muni.cz/~hopet/HDV/fwcontrol-6.0.patch

Do you think it would be possible to have that patch integrated
into the base system? I've sent this patch approximately half a year
ago, got some basic positive response but the list seems to be rather
dead since then :(.
