Description Miles Lubin 2004-10-26 13:12:32 UTC
The patch at the above URL adds support for new Hoppage tuners (one of which I own). It was comitted to 2.6.10-rc1, so it shouldn't be much of a problem.
ChangeLog entry for 2.6.10-rc1:
	[PATCH] v4l: tuner update
	This is a update for the analog tv tuner module, it adds support for two
	new tuner chips.

Can you attach the whole patch here for us to use/look at in a format that we can use to apply to the tree?

Patch *does not* apply cleanly to g-d-s-2.6.9; however, I just tested it and it
works fine.
Comment 3 Miles Lubin 2004-10-26 15:18:57 UTC
Actually, I spoke too soon. It isn't working, I just get static. :(
I'll try to see if i can get this to work easily, if not I'll just close the bug and patch manually.

Ok, this patch applys cleanly and works. It came straight from the video4linux
kernel patches at:

Sorry, rather than adding another feature patch to our set I'd rather let this slip in when 2.6.10 comes around. I hope its not too inconvenient for you to patch manually for now.
