Nah, there is an even larger problem: DVB-S2 implies a max Srate = 30MSPS and DVB-S implies max srate = 45MSPS. There are quite a load of nasty quirks like that with the current API. Another one is that, the user application will never know whether a tuning failed or not. Well, most of those application developers did want those quirks and hence we do have them. Interesting, isn't it ? Regards, Manu _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
