Hi Dan.

I'm now trying to build kbtv2 v1.92 on -CURRENT/amd64 with SAA kmod.
Along with `incorrect number of args to bus_setup_intr' fix (I guess
that's "FreeBSD 7 support" coming in beta4 :-)), could you please define
NO_WERROR in kmod/saa/kmod/Makefile to allow it to build on -CURRENT
with -Werror enabled? 

Following messages are displayed during boot (saa_tuner="YES" in
iicbus0: START: bus error (status 0x9 loop:12)
WARNING pid 734 (initial thread): ioctl sign-extension ioctl

Channel tuning works fine, though there's no colour and sound. I've
tried selecting different TV standards in Hardware->Configure (tuner
type is `Philips MK3'), with no success. Any hints?

0x1131	Philips Semiconductors
0x7133	Philips SAA7133 AV broadcast decoder
0x1461	AverMedia Technologies Inc
0x9715	AVerTV Studio 307

saa0 at pci0:1:7:0:        class=0x048000 card=0x97151461 chip=0x71331131
rev=0xd1 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Philips Semiconductors'
    device     = 'Philips SAA7135hl ENLTV TV/Radio Tuner'
    class      = multimedia

Thank you for nice program :-)
