[thx to JeyCol]
Some additional notes:
AC3 - works
DISEqC works (the Frontpanel-processor does the timing for us) (sagem maybe? philips NOT (because i have no diseqc-equipment)
Teletext - work not yet started but OSD Teletext should work as well as exporoting the Teletext to the connected TV
The Processor itself and the I2C-Bus of course do work! (that's the
base! and the linuxkernel does this for us (although we had to redo the ppc-i2c code) :))
The Linuxkernel also supports the serial ports (the 1st is on the SUB-D connector at the back of the box, the modem is connected to the 2nd)
So the modem needs no drivers - just talk to it via serial port
Something about standards and APIs:
We use the prensent standards and APIs as base for our drivers.
The Sound-driver for example uses the normal OSS-interface. (/dev/dsp, /dev/audio, /dev/mixer). That means that "normal" and "usual" Linux-apps will be able to play sound via the BOX. But the Sound-driver SUCK (at this time)!
The Framebuffer is just like the other Framebuffers in Linux. Pictureviewers and so on are possible that way. Also ALPHA-Blending and nice-looking GUIs are possible.
An accelerated driver is in work. BUT as *** SUCKS so no accelerated fb :/
The Infrared-Drivers (receiving and transmitting) will be/are LIRC-compatible (will they ever be completed?).
The Network will of course work via TCP/IP.
We will also make all the DVB-related Haardware kompatible to the DVB-API
