Great work,

attached you find two patches, the one against 1.7.1 + extensions 64 patch
and the tuning fix patch.
The situation with the tunig fix is funny. Yesterday in Steve Toth's hg
repository there where the patches from http://dev.kewl.org/v4l-dvb/patches/
included. Today they seems to be gone. With the the patches applyed the
tuning with the S2API patch was broken. For the moment i let the tuning
fix patch in.

> Hello All,
> Today I finished the patch for DVB-S, DVB-S2, DVB-T and DVB-C support
> using S2API in combination with VDR 1.7.0. I've tested my code on DVB-S,
> DVB-S2 and DVB-T transports and they were all successful. DVB-C is
> untested (don't have a DVB-C option where I live) but it should work in
> *THEORY* ;)
> DVB-S and DVB-S2 were tested on a Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-HD-S2 card. DVB-T
> was tested on a Gigabyte GT-U7000-RH USB device. I used the latest v4l
> pull and viewing was very stable with both DVB devices. I also didn't had
> any problems any more when switching between DVB-S(2) and DVB-T, but it
> can be that this patch will *NOT* work correctly on MFE DVB devices like
> the HVR-3000 or HVR-4000 (I had to do some hacking because strangely,
> DVB-T transports were offered to my DVB-S DVB device). Since I can't test
> this, I hope others can tell me if it works or not.
> Enclosed are two patches. The clean patch is for a clean VDR 1.7.0 source
> tree patched with Reinhard's
> vdr-1.7.0-h264-syncearly-framespersec-audioindexer-fielddetection-speedup.diff.bz2
> patch. The patched patch is for those who have used Edgar (gimli) Hucek's
> patch for VDR 1.7.0. In theory it should also work with my last send
> patch.
> The patch itself is still based upon Igor M. Liplianin's S2API patch. Many
> thanks to Igor, Darron Broad and Edgar (gimli) Hucek for the help and
> suggestions with the previous and current patch. Again, any feedback on
> this patch is highly appreciated!
