In an SVN revision? I know there was a patch available in April,
but I didn't think it made it into 7.0 (not in changelog), and
last I checked (a couple weeks ago) captioning was not yet working
with the new API..
I'm using the in kernel ivtv drivers here and the quality of the
PVR-500 recordings has increased immensely, but there are still
way too many denoising artifacts. It sort of looks like an often
played video tape recorded in ELP mode.
