Andrew - I have the NovaT500 and 0710, what currently provides the interface? Is it purely the Nova driver and V4L replaces some of this with a more standardised interface, or is there already a V4l in my system (earlier version?) that this updates? I've never quite understood whether V4L is new or not for us.
What changes/improvements would I expect to see on my system with this? But yes, I would be interested in trying it....
V4L is the complete set of kernel modules that supports TV. The two debs we have update the firmware and the modules...importantly they are built using DKMS directly on your Kernel/sources/headers...so these debs do not contain pre-compiled code as normal debs do...these build the modules from source for your installed kernel.
I will email you the current build of the debs so you can give them a test...they will build on any DKMS enabled system (at least theoretically ;-) )
All the best
**We have been running T500's with this V4L build reliably for several weeks now...so this may be the version that makes them usable again ;-)
