This patch doesn't prevent customizing the IF. It will just avoid the need of setting the IF on both xc5000 and drx-k. Basically, (some) DRX-K based boards use different IF's depending on the bandwidth and delivery system type. Instead of adding a complex logic that would allow such kind of IF adjustments on both, drx-k will simply inquire the tuner about what IF is currently used. > > All that said, if somebody actually intends to hack on it, I can look > up what the correct IF is for the 520e. > > Devin > -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-media" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
