Question DVB adapter driver DVB-C DVB-T switching - Linux DVB API V5


I'm developing a DVB adapter driver (kernel module) which supports DVB-C and DVB-T reception. I want to use the Linux DVB API V5 (linuxtv.org).

Is it possible to do a API call which will switch between DVB-C and DVB-T?
Which call is this? FE_SET_PROPERTY? Which property?
Or is this impossible what is best practice for doing this switch?

Hope you can help,

Regards,

Rob

Talking Not possilble via API

Via the linux media mailing list i got this reply.
Thanks Markus

--------- Linux Media Mailing List reply -----------------------------

The current way is to register 2 frontends when doing it with the kernel drivers.
One for DVB-C and another one for DVB-T, Applications currently cannot handle a single frontend node with both features.

Best Regards,
Markus

Solved

A multi frontend approach as described by the mailing list is implemented. It made the driver somewhat complicated because a device that is opened in DVB-C mode can not be used for DVB-T mode, but it is working now.
