Default xawtv still broken (since version 5336 - (release 2004!))


i tried many nvidia-drivers (7184, 9629 .... see also: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=55557 or http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=48567), but xawtv (used with a bt848-tv-card, v4l) is still broken (since nvidia-5336).

After more then 2 years: will the problem be fixed in the future?
I searched the forum for a solution - without success! does anyone has a workaround/solution where overlay and xv (overlay with hardware-scaling) works?

Its not at all clear from your post what specifically is 'broken', however I've seen many reports from others using xawtv with drivers significantly more recent than 1.0-5336 (up to and including 1.0-8762). So, whatever is wrong, is potentially specific to your environment.

Since xawtv seems to have gone into an unmaintained state quite a while ago, have you considered using one of the numerous alternatives?

If you'd like further assistance, please generate and provide an nvidia-bug-report.log along with details on how your problem can be reproduced.
