Subject: Re: Weird green patterns on video

Thanks, but I lack the technical knowledge of how the driver works, so
I don't know how I could fix this issue. How do I adjust the pitch on
the buffer?

The owner of the device is willing to ship it for free to anyone that
would add support for the device. No need to send it back to the owner
once fixed. Send me a private reply if you, or anyone else, are

The device is from Europe, I don't know if that would cause any
problem when trying to use it with devices from North America.

Have a nice day,
