[vdr] DXR3 WSS patch

For those that are not aware, Seppo Ingalsuo's
em8300-adv7170-wss  (Wide Screen Signaling) patch
works only with DXR3 cards with the ADV7170 TV encoder
device to produce the line23 WSS signal for PAL TV.
For those of us unfortunate enough to have a DXR3 card
with a BT865 TV encoder chip, the WSS patch will not
work because the BT865 is incapable of producing
line23 WSS for PAL TV (Google "bt864a/bt865a errata").
I would like to ask the DXR3 plugin developers if an
alternative could be devised whereby for BT865 DXR3
cards some general purpose hardware pin could be
toggled between 12Volts(4:3) and 6Volts(16:9) to
emulate a pin8 Peritel/SCART wide screen signal?

Many thanks to all of the DXR3-plugin and EM8300
driver developers. The driver and plugin have recently
improved dramatically.
Special thanks to Ville Skyttä for providing the very
useful "Unofficial Hollywood+/DXR3 patches and CVS
