Re: Pinnacle PCTV DVB-T 70e

Hi Alex,

this list is all but dead. Use the linux-media mailing list instead (I
have cc'ed my reply to it).....in the olden days, the video4linux list
was the correct one for analog devices, and linux-dvb for (surprise,
surprise) dvb related discussion. Nowadays, they have both been
superseded by the linux-media list.

He stopped supporting his driver and now only works on closed source

The person in question, unfortunately and needlessly, came to an impasse
with the v4l-dvb project. He later stopped developing his work. And no
one here is much interested in touching his with a hundred and ten foot

You can, however, look to see if you can add support for your device to
the existing v4l-dvb kernel driver. There are several developers that
are knowledgeable of the em28xx driver, and whom may be able to help you
in that regard, but you will have to gain there attention first.
