Yeah, I started working on it when I was at the Plumbers Conference,
but haven't wanted to commit to it publicly until I had something
working, mainly because it's a project I'm working on in the
background (and I've already got three or four such projects). And
like most stuff I'm working on, progress can always be sped up
considerably if a commercial party comes along and decides its worth
sponsoring (but the converse applies as well - progress slows down on
background items when I'm working on other sponsored work).
In the worst case, tvtime is my target use case for the part of the
Media Controller framework that allows you to associate video streams
with ALSA and VBI devices, so it *will* get done eventually.
