I have a Kodicom 4400R clone and have the driver loading with this configuration:
Dmesg is returning:

But, the strange thing is that I get a mostly blue screen unless I populate what's coming in; so, for example, if I point the camera at a dark spot, the signal coming into xawtv is mostly blue (= no signal) - however, if I point it at a bright source, I get less of the blue and more of what I am filming! Am I missing some strange configuration or is something more sinister going on, like missed sync signals?
Also, is this normal:
v4l2: WARNING: framebuffer size mismatch
v4l2: me=1280x960 v4l=0x0
v4l2 reporting 0x0? It doesn't seem right...
EDIT: Solved - will post the findings in the 4400 howto.
