I am using the kernel that came with R5D1. Not sure which kernel version,
but I used the patch as suggested.
I guess part of my question is, "Is the 2.6.18 kernel with IVTV-0.8.1 the
same as the older patched kernel or is it improved?" Sounds like it is the
same, so there are still performance issues if people are complaining.
I searched the IVTV list but I don't see a lot of specific complaints about
the 500 with the new kernel with 0.8.1 ivtv drivers. I was hoping to get
some feedback on the quality of ivtv-0.8.1 for the PVR 500, if anyone has
tried it out.
