Just a thought (this is concerning the HVR-1300 only), but seeing as it appears that everyone is having this problem, with recent kernels, and it only needs to be fixed by commenting out those same few lines in the source code, and recompiling. Wouldn't it save a whole load of hassle if we were able to sorta have those 5 lines commented out/removed in the first place, so that from then on, the drivers would work out of the box, without the need to download and recompile them? Maybe someone could contact the v4l guys and try and get it sorted? Just a thought, please tell me if there's anything preventing that?
