Had been away on a vacation, plus some work, hence no recent changes.

It shouldn't be hard to use the 2 repositories together, it can be used
quite straight forward like this:

$ hg clone http://jusst.de/hg/multiproto

$ cd multiproto

$ hg pull -u http://linuxtv.org/hg/~endriss/v4l-dvb-av7110-full-ts-mod

After the pull is complete, it will ask you to merge the heads:

$ hg merge

commit the merge

$ hg commit

You have both the functionality of both trees in one tree.
If that looks hard, i can push a tree which is a result of the above
outlined steps.
