I get the feeling that my posting is totally ignored here.

I thought it would be a good idea to report the problem here. The PVR350 is
used by many mythtv users, so I guess a lot of users will have problems with
the bug.

I've filed the following bug report in Launchpad so that this gets
tracked and fixed.

Thanks,

The straight cherry pick needs a little TLC as it does not compile.

Hi Tim,

are you sure you are using the right patch?
You can`t use the patch from the linuxtv repository, this is for a newer
version of the file

For the 2.6.28 saa7127.c there is an attached patch in the posting from Hans
Verkuil (see link above, "Attachment (saa7127.diff):").
This has ready been tested with the saa7127.c in the vanilla 2.6.28 kernel.

I just verified that the saa7127.c from the jaunty git is identical to the
2.6.28 vanilla module, so it **must** compile.

If this doesn`t solve it, please send me the compile error.

@ Leann Ogasawara: Thanks for creating the launchpad bug report!

Greets,
Martin
