Now that sound is (kinda) working I can devote myself to fixing the
terrible quality from my PVR-500.
I'm currently using 0.5.1 with the following firmware:
symlinked to v4l-cx2341x-enc.fw
symlinked to v4l-cx25840.fw
The "tuning woes" thread suggests that iovtv 0.3.8 is the most
trouble-free version and as I had good results with 0.3.7 I'm considering
trying this first and using the firmware from the cd (as before).
Only problem I can think of is that the 0.5.1 stuff included a rebuild of
v4l, so presumably I need to recompile all my v4l stuff from the vanilla
kernel source before I can use older ivtv drivers. Is this true?
Any better suggestions for PAL cards?
