A new pvrusb2 snapshot is available. THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT UPDATE.
Feature-wise the driver looks the same, but a lot has changed under the
hood. The goal here was to improve the capture stability. I think I've
succeeded - I can no longer cause the video to corrupt. In addition, a
stress test written by Hans Verkuil for ivtv which previously failed on
this driver now works. I've been working on these changes for a while.
I hope you all like the results.
I am not going to print the summary of changes here - it's too lengthy.
Instead I invite you to see for youself by looking here:
Please let me know if you see any new problems with this snapshot.
Being that there are a large number of changes, the risk for breakage is
considerably higher this time. But I do believe this is an overall
improvement; I've been beating on the driver here and it's time for
others to play. Please try it out.
I have been testing with vanilla kernel version 220.127.116.11. I did verify
successful compilation of the driver all the way back to 2.6.12 (as
usual) but I have NOT tested any of those versions. I also verified
correct compilation under 2.6.23.x. I have no reason to suspect there
might be problems in other kernels, but one never knows...
