I am now playing around with the available code for quite some time now with mixed success, but no solution comes near the term “stable”.
• kernel: nothing in there. Well, reasonable. • v4l-dvb: nothing in there. • s2-liplianin: mantis available, but obviously not under development/bugfixing. IR seems to work, CI handling looks quite broken, hangups/lockups are the rule, additional problems with more than one of these cards in the system. • mantis-v4l: does not compile out of the box for recent kernels. When hand-knitting the files into a kernel source directory (2.6.31), works quite unstable, module reloading frequently segfaults. IR does not work (at least for VDR), CI handling looks better than s2-liplianin. Conclusion: Stability is way below a level for reasonable usage while bug fixing.  gives an overview of the current state of (non-)development. Does this still apply? My questions are: • Is there someone feeling responsible for that baby? • What is the main part of the mantis stuff not working – mantis itself, the frontend, or adaptions from multiproto to s2api? • What can someone owning some of these cards (one Terratec, two Technisat) do to help the (former) authors to continue their work? • Is there some documentation available which would enable ‘the community’ to work on that further?
