Everyone understands and appreciates the time and efforts you took, but bear in mind that a factual and well-organized resource for everyone interested in analog or digital TV is the ultimate aim of the LinuxTV wiki.

Just toying

Would like to try to setup a table for the chipsets using templates such that, with using logic to define relevant fields, we have all the data contained in one spot (I guess much like Henrik was doing with the DVB-T USB stuff), but can then parse the info for display in relevant articles, such that there isn't duplication. Present duplication example:

A Sortable List of Chipsets
Vendor Chipset Tuner Analog
Standard Modulation
Kernel Modules
Firmware Comments
Afatech AF9005 No No Yes DVB-T COFDM No No No Yes USB Yes Yes  ? Yes
  • A combo USB bridge & demod IC

Misc Info & ideas for me:


  • Web colours
  • v4l --> style="background-color:#006600;
  • DVB --> style="background-color:#6289AB;


style="color:green; background-color:#ffffcc;"
style="background-color:# ;"

Icons wanted:

  • need to find or create a chain link icon for "links"
  • * terrestrial broadcast tower
  • sat dish
  • * pcmcia
  • pci
  • pcie
  • firewire
