Currently S2API is in a real speed-train and new devices are added very rapidly. Only the devices currently in Multiproto and written by Manu Abraham are not yet ported. Also people are allready busy with patches for Kaffeine (allready done) and MythTV (not seen yet, but it's WIP according to a post on the linux-dvb mailinglist).

Mainly I was thinking of doing it myself (I have a Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-HD-S2 which is allready supported in S2API) in the hope to have it working in the next weekend. But if it's allready done or in progress, then I would like to use my time for something else ;)

Any progress sofar ?

I also wonder about the H.264 extension...

Thanks.
