SubjectDVB abstractions: filters and feeds
Date
Hello,

I'm having a hard time understanding two abstractions in the DVB framework,
namely filters and feeds (P.S. I now see there are dvb_demux_filter's and
dmxdev_filter's, so it's really 3 abstractions that I'm not grasping.)

Specifically,

struct dvb_demux {
...
int filternum;
int feednum;
struct dvb_demux_filter *filter;
struct dvb_demux_feed *feed;

and

struct dmxdev {
...
struct dmxdev_filter *filter;
int filternum;


Also, I'm not sure about the relationship between dvb_demux and dmxdev.
Should they have the same filternum for a given adapter instance?

Basically, could someone shed a bit of light on these topics?

struct dmxdev : "Describes a digital TV demux device." /me puzzled

struct dvb_demux : "represents a digital TV demux"


Regards.
