Hello,

 

I would like to use the adv7280am (mipi csi2 interface) linux driver on a i.MX 8M Mini.

The only way to enable adv7280 driver (VIDEO_ADV7180 ,under media-> i2c section https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/drivers/media/i2c/adv7180.c ) is to disable the "autoselect ancillary drivers"..but in any case I did not suceed to make it work (no video conversion).
There is also the MXC_TVIN_ADV7180 (under video->capture section ), but seems that it is not possible to enable it.


Is the driver supported and working at the moment by the iMX8 processors as it was on iMX6? If yes, does it use the available hardware (vpu?) at the best? If officially not supported, is it planned to work on it in the future? I think it is an important stuff to allow video acquisition from analogic cameras.

 

Thanks for your time, have a nice day.

 

Alex
