Guys and Dolls,

finally the integration of the linux-tuner module seems stable. get it at:

 - should support all tuners ivtv-0.4.6 supports.
 - should work for 150, 250, 350 and 500 cards ( currently only 350s
and 500s are confirmed to be working ).
 - removed: channel tuning. tune by frequency instead.

 - fixed broken NTSC support.
 - broken streams?

 - if you are experiencing a lot of dma-messages: crank up your Hz!
especially for machines running X. i am running at 1000hz now.
 - after the module is loaded, only a "pvr250-setchannel yyy.xx" is needed.

thanks a bunch to:
 - Torfinn, for access to his his amd64 + pvr350
 - Anders, for access to his pvr350
 - Rick and Sean for testing
 - Rick ( C Petty ) for access to his pvr500

if you are going to test this version, i would like to hear from you (
cc to the list as well):
 - did it work
 - how do you rate the quality of the capture
 - what kind of card ( + tuner type ) , PAL or NTSC ( post relevant
part of /var/log/message if you are lazy )
 - are you experiencing problems, and if so: which problems. lots of
dma-messages count as a problem as well.

when there is enough positive feedback i will update the port in the ports-tree.
