just to explain what the changes actually do:

the wm8775 in v4l-dvb has a fixed gain which uses a form of AGC
circuit to center to gain someplace above 0dB. this function is

my changes to not activate that feature and by defailt the gain
is set to 0dB.

sort of yes. before and after I could get distortion in some
audio passages, however, by utilising v4l2-ctl to set the gain
to -6dB those passages become clear. this will be input
dependant. I don't really have a lot of test cases to provide
you with and haven't done much investigation into the optimum

you can test this more easily using the newly working FM
radio (does it work in the hvr-3000) in kradio which has
a radio volume control.
