I have to imagine that Hauppauge, the most well known player in the
field of tv capture devices, is not sitting still on this either.
BTW, I know things have been quiet here. But I am working on a major
change to the way that the rendering pipeline is stopped / started that
I am hoping will further stabilize the encoder. I also now know
additional information (thank you Mike Krufky) that breathes new life
into the possibility of supporting uncompressed video output - but that
is still much further out. And there's added demand now to get this
thing working with a DVB interface as well. So lots of interesting
stuff going on.
There's a fix coming for a kernel oops bug fix (found Friday night), for
which I am going to release a new snapshot probably later today.
