This driver gives you the capability to work with the MediaFocus Satellite TV card under Linux. This driver contains modules for Zorans multimedia controller ZR36120/ZR36125, Micronas Intermetall Video Pixel Decoder VPX32XX series, Digital Radio Processor DRP3510 (astra digital radio decoder), Multistandard Sound Processor MSP3400 C, SGS Thompson Satellite Sound and Video Processor STV0030 and Mitels 2.6 GHz Synthesiser SP5055 (satellite tuner).
A satellite frequency table for xawtv is also included. In this table the 18/14V and 22kHz settings are placed within the frequency values. In order to avoid this 'dirty' implementation two possible future ioctls for the v4l-API are proposed here.
The above mentioned driver was written for the ZR36120/ZR36125-based MediaFocus Sat-PC card. Nowadays TechniSat is selling a new MediaFocus card, which is based on the Philips SAA 7146 multimedia-chip. A driver for this card can be found on the official TechniSat MediafocusII website.
