Well, I don't know kernel APIs enough to be sure ;)
I agree DVB is probably too complicated for PVR boards, one great thing in
V4L is that any program can get the MPEG stream very easily (this is how the
Kfir board currently works, which is quite convenient compared to satellite
cards). AFAIK V4L2 features /dev/codec devices so it could be the best
choice, although V4L may work as well.
