I think you hit it the nail on the squarely on the head with your response
that I want something known to work sooner rather than at some point in the
For me Time is an issue. I neither have the time nor the desire to design
and build a pre-alpha stage driver for a product that's already a challenge.
Unlike some I have interests that extend beyond m*tv. While, I like to tweak
code from time to time, I need a product that I can install and actually
use. Besides I get enough dev work at work. When I come home I like to
distance myself. However, I do have a few modifications planned. But
nothing too dramatic.
Note: I've spent months on this "weekend project" before I was able to get
myth installed and running in a pseudo-stable manner. And that was with
vendor supported products. Steep learning curve ? You bet. Would I do it
again, Hell NO!
There is nothing wrong with wanting to write a driver for some product, but
I hope you understand that it's not as simple as it sounds, and since you
can't expect ATI to offer any assistance, all I can say is good luck and let
me know how you are doing in say 6 months or so.
