Oh, ok, I take that back, then. When I was wrestling with the "my
PVR-350 output is green" problem back when I guess I was one of the
first people with the revision 991 of the card, I asked them
personally for a register map, so that I wouldn't have to randomly
poke values in there and hope that I didn't break anything. They said
"no", so I ended up having to reverse-engineer to the best of my
ability what those registers were for. It worked, but I would have
much preferred a binary driver for it all said and done.
