After a rather large bug hunt, I’ve finally submitted the HVR-950q patches upstream. In the end, we created 24 patches addressing a ton of longstanding bugs:
What started out as a search for a single reliability bug resulted in a very large number of issues being fixed spanning three different drivers. Hooray for open source!
Awesome. Hooray for folks like you that make open source great! I’m so glad you’ve given this attention to these drivers so folks like me can continue to make good use of them, and now with much snappier tuning and better reliability. Cheers!

Can the code you’ve written be used to take screen shots of an analog video source connected to the WinTV-HVR-950Q?
Because the device conforms to the V4L2 specification, there are a variety of applications out there which can be used for this purpose (any that support the V4L2 API). Tvtime and VLC have this functionality built in, but if you’re looking for source code you may wish to look at the “capture.c” source that is widely available and demonstrates how to capture from a V4L2 device.
