> Hi,
> I am rather new to MythTV, but I believe that I have succeded to run MythTV with V4L2. There was a posting some time ago about that, but simply #define V4L2 did not work. Instead I had to do the following:
> 1. Copy new videodev.h and videodev2.h from  the v4l2 intallation directory to /usr/include/linux
> 2. #define V4L2 (for example in videodev2.h) 
> 3. In videodev.h, deleted #include linux/time.h. 
> 4. Did some code changes in NuppelVideoRecorder.cpp. There were a some syntax errors from the compiler. But it was obvious what to do from looking at videodef2.h
> (If someone is interested in what I have changed exactly, please let me know.)
> After all, it works now. But it also worked before and I am not sure, if I have any benefits from V4L2 now. Perhaps someone can tell about their experiences with MythTV and V4L2/SAA7134.
> Kind regards,
> 	Thorsten
