well, i was just telling Mauro off-list that I was interested in getting
into V4L/DVB, but I don't have hardware to test. so if there's a sample
somewhere that can be mailed out, I'm game, else I'll have to take on
one of the "non-hardware" projects in V4L. also, I'm a kernel noob, so
if you don't think I can do it as a first project, I might have to pass
(but I'm a quick study, so I might be able to handle it - it'll be slow
though - not cause I don't have the time, but because I'll be learning
the whole way)
