     bktr - video capture driver

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     bktr* at pci? dev ? function ?
     radio* at bktr?

     option BKTR_ALLOC_PAGES=nnn
     option BKTR_OVERRIDE_CARD=nnn
     option BKTR_OVERRIDE_MSP=n
     option BKTR_OVERRIDE_TUNER=nnn

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The bktr driver provides support for PCI video  capture  and
VBI capture on
     low cost, high performance boards.  This should support most
video cards
     based on the Brooktree Bt848/849/878/879 Video Capture Chip.
The driver
     also supports FM Radio if the Tuner supports it.

     Specifically, the following cards are known to work:

           Animation Technologies FlyVideo
           Askey/Dynalink Magic TView
           ATI TV-Wonder and Wonder/VE
           AverMedia cards
           Hauppauge Wincast TV and WinTV/PCI
           IMS TV Turbo
           Intel Smart Video Recorder III
           I/O DATA GV-BCTV2/PCI
           KISS TV/FM PCI
           Leadtek Winfast TV 2000
           Miro PC TV
           MMAC Osprey
           NEC PK-UG-X017
           STB TV PCI Television Tuner
           Terratec TerraTVplus
           Video Highway XTreme
           VideoLogic Captivator PCI
           Zoltrix TV

     The driver currently supports the following features:

           PCI to PCI DMA transfer

     On  these  cards,  tuners and other components are interconnected with an
     I2C bus.  The Brooktree848 chips act as a master  device  on
the bus to
     control them.

     The following kernel configuration options are available:

     option BKTR_ALLOC_PAGES=nnn
               Specifies  the number of contiguous pages to allocate when successfully
 probed.  The default number of pages allocated by the
               kernel   is   216.   This  means  that  there  are
(216*4096) bytes
               available for use.

     option         BKTR_SYSTEM_DEFAULT="(BROOKTREE_PAL         |
               One  of  these  options can be used to set the default video format
 for the driver.  This fixed random  hangs  and
lockups with
               the VideoLogic Captivator PCI card.

     option BKTR_OVERRIDE_CARD=nnn
               Select  a specific card (overrides autodetection).
`nnn' is set
               to one of the names listed and explained below.

HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

     The bktr driver first appeared in FreeBSD 2.2.

AUTHORS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The bktr driver is based on the work of Jim Lowe
     Mark Tinguely <tinguely@plains.nodak.edu>,
     Amancio Hasty <hasty@star-gate.com>,
     Roger Hardiman <roger@FreeBSD.org> and a bunch of other people.

CAVEATS    [Toc]    [Back]

     On  big-endian  architectures  it is not possible to program
the card to
     perform proper byte swapping in 24 bit modes, therefore only
16 and 32
     bit modes are supported.

OpenBSD      3.6                         January     28,     1998
