Hey, sorry it took me so long to reply. My backend says (over and over)

IVTV_IOC_G_CODEC:: Bad address
Error getting codec params

So I tried
ivtvctl --set-codec-params=dnr_mode=0,dnr_temporal=0
but it echoed back
ioctl: IVTV_IOC_G_CODEC failed

So now I'm totally confused. Anyone ever had this problem?
