I think both solutions can cooexist nicely, the userspace framework is a
nice addition. XC3028 driver can be pushed nicely to mainline without
significant v4l modifications.
Mauro & Marcus maybe we should organise a Linux DVB symposium in
(Amsterdam or Berlin).
Afterwards drink beer until Finnish is fluently spoken. Drinks are on me....
When do you guys heve the time to come over?
27-28 October would fit nicely, I think I can get some sponsors
interested so we can make it a bigger event....
