As you know, I'm writing a driver for the SAA7164 chipset, for the
HVR2200 DVB-T and HVR2250 ATSC/QAM products.
People have been asking for status, here's where I am.
Do I have anything to share with people yet? Not yet.
The basic driver framework is done. Firmware is loading, I can
talking to the silicon through the proprietary PCIe ring buffer
interface. I2C is working, eeprom and tuner/demod access is done.
The HVR2250 is responding to azap commands, the tuners and demods
are locking, snr looks pretty good... it's going to be a popular
board for people. The HVR2200 (DVB-T Version) should also worked
with tzap, it's untested and I can't comment on SNR at this stage. I
need to add the DMA/buffering code, this is the missing pieces
before a first public release. When I have anything to share I'll
put up a tree and post a 'testers required' message here.
We're a couple episodes into this fall television season and I'm missing
my shows. ;)
Having another month down, I wanted to send a friendly nudge your
direction, Steve, to see how this is progressing.
