LinuxTV.org hosts both the Video4Linux (analog video) and DVB (digital TV) Linux subsystems.

Despite the fact that the two subsystems are very unique from one another, real world application often finds them closely intertwined in scope or context.

As such, it is practical that the two wiki contents be brought together. This should foster a more efficient dissemination of content and, in general, make for a more user friendly source of information.

At the same time, the merger will by no means undermine the fact that we are indeed dealing with two unique subsystems!
