  - Show the actual amount of bytes read from /dev/videoX in the

  - Fix busy wait loop
- 0.8.1 stable release

  - added videodev2.h in utils since distros often are sloppy
  in updating this file in a new kernel release.
  - some usability improvements to v4l2-ctl. Please note! Some
  options have new names.
  - workaround VIDIOC_INT_S_REGISTER kernel bug (wrong ioctl value
  in the v4l2-common.h header, this is fixed in 2.6.19).
  - saa717x fixes for Japanese cards.
  - reported pix format was V4L2_PIX_FMT_UYVY instead of V4L2_PIX_FMT_HM12.
  - added missing VIDIOC_ENUM_FMT ioctl.
  - added new IVTV_IOC_STOP ioctl (thanks to Martin Dauskardt <>)
  - added new IVTV_IOC_PAUSE_BLACK ioctl (thanks to Martin Dauskardt <>)
  Similar to IVTV_IOC_PAUSE, but it turns the output black when paused.
  - Fix encoder pause/resume: these two were swapped.
  - Firmware loading has been made more robust
  Thanks to Robert Hardy <>.
  - Firmware loading once again supports ppc.
  - Fix nasty bug when loading the init mpeg file
  Thanks to Robert Hardy <>.
  - Enabling of newi2c support now depends on the presence of an IR-blaster.
  - No longer turn the digitizer off and on when changing channels, this
  caused the tinny audio!
  - Fix VIDIOC_STREAMOFF support.
  - Detection of Hauppauge cards is now fully based on the tveeprom,
  PCI IDs are ignored. Other cards still use the PCI ID for detection.
  - The detection of the first or second unit of a PVR500 is now done based
  on the PCI 'slot' used on the PVR500 card. The first unit has slot 8,
  the second has slot 9.
  - Added IR-blaster detection, with thanks to Hauppauge's Steven Toth for
  providing this information.
  - Fix initial PAL/SECAM/NTSC tuner defaults.
  - Fix driver cleanup in case an error occurs.
  - Ripped out dynamic buffer allocation: it never worked right and gave
  some people a lot of grief.
