"ValiantVision" is the official rework of the well known AmithlonTV.
AmithlonTV contained a simple driver architecture, which allowed a flexible
extension and usage. Unfortunately several mines and function glitches would have
made the implementation of several features very difficulty. Due this reason
the original project was stopped a while ago. I did intensive work on the driver
and tried several models and there pro and contra.
In addition to that alternative Amiga systems are now available providing
additional possibilities, which couldn't be supported with the old version.
This page will inform like a log about the status and the planned features. I'll
also talk about problems and other stuff making such a project very complicated.
Just note, that I will adjust the development to my personal needs. I may pause
for a while or swap to other projects, like I did before. I still consider this
as a hobby and so don't blame me, if I won't work on it for a longer period. It
all depends on my mood and on my motivation.
So don't expect daily news. As soon as the global driver set is working the
total number of drivers will grow, because most drivers are nearly identical and
need only little configuration and modification. First I will create drivers for
the stuff I can test on my own.
Questions about development won't be answered without a good reason, but I'll
note them and may setup a FAQ section on this page.
Also there is no need to ask for beta version. I know a good group of
beta testers with the required background and motivation to help and support.
These people will automatically get the first available drivers.
For suggestions and discussions regarding tv cards and their applications the
ValiantVision group is available. The old AmithlonTV
group will be removed, so it's wise to swap to the new forum.
As soon as there will be an official beta version, the stuff will be released
and announced here.
