AV1394(7D) Devices AV1394(7D)

av1394 - 1394 audio/video driver


The av1394 driver implements iec61883(7I) interfaces for IEEE 1394 compliant devices.

The driver allows applications to act as FCP controllers, but not FCP targets. Only IEC61883_FCP_CMD requests can be sent with write(2). Only IEC61883_FCP_RESP requests can be received with read(2).

When the read/write method of is used for transmit, the driver is capable of auto-detecting and transmitting SD-DVCR 525/60 and 625/50 streams. See iec61883(7I) for details.
