[LinuxBIOS] Questions regarding the TV IN functions for one of the boards that were used

Hello from Gregg C Levine
I've got a new project being created. It concerns a system that uses a
rather specialized, and unfortunately not open sourced protocol for
talking to external hardware. However the software that does speak to
the device is. It's the One-Wire protocol, and the OWFS software,

Basically the hardware would be communicating with other items that
would eventually create a video signal. For development purposes I've
chosen to, ah, do things here, and I'd be using a specific tuner card,
name on request. But I'd eventually like to move to a Linux BIOS
solution. Here's an e-mail message that Google found for me that
concerns itself with one of the EPIA family boards:

Mini-PCI TV Tuners with hardware encoding

What mini-pci TV Tuners have people had success using in Linux based
systems? Follow-up questions would be what chipsets do they use (i.e.
which device drivers are they compatible with) and from whom can I buy
small quantities?
I have plans for a Kontron X-board based system, and VIA's upcoming
EPIA N board will also have a mini-pci slot, opening up options for a
lot of people.


It came from a forum which lives somewhere on the Linux Devices site,
or did, I do not know if the forum is still active.

I do remember that one of the EPIA boards did support composite video
out, but I do not recall which one, nor do I have access to my local

And Ron, if this is really not on topic for anything currently being
discussed, even though I do plan on my board design becoming a Linux
BIOS platform, I shall discontinue discussing it, with this message.
