Subject: [Livid-dev] Where should I start?

I am working on the driver for the Cinemaster 2.2/2.3 DVD card (both based
on Zoran 36120 chip)
I have a 2.3 board now so I am slowly getting it going (anyone want to give
me a 2.2 one?)
Should I write it using v4l/v4l2 interface or what?
Where can I find the specs for a Linux DVD API? I think someone has written
one (basis of one)??
Or anyone help me on the drivers? I've found Quadrant impossible in the past
to get any information.

See http://www.linuxtv.org/dvd/api/. Basically, v4l2 is fine, but
requires some additions to fully support DVD.
