The latest known working driver is the 8178, all the others, including the 8774, have the v4l <-> xvideo overlay problem.

Yes, in fact if your read carefully what I wrote, it states that the 8774 does not work, the latest known _working_ is the 8178, the ones which came after, all show the problem, including the latest released 8774.

So, if you are using v4l <-> xvideo overlay, the 8774 will not work.

Of course, other configurations, like OpenGL instead of xvideo overlay, do work.
