- Power management is now properly supported - no more sucking up your laptop battery and burning your fingers on the tuner's f-connector when the device is idle (can be disabled with the "no_poweroff"
- Faster tuning - average 10x improvement in time to lock. Average lock time now around 350ms, down from 3200ms. No more multi-second delays when trying to channel surf in tvtime.
- Redistributable firmware - Xceive has graciously allowed us to redistribute the firmware and bundle it in the distros. No more need for users to manually extract the blob from the Hauppauge Windows driver.
I look forward to feedback from testers, and will be glad to finally get closure on this series of patches.
