That's nice and welcomed !

FYI, I had a BCM70012 which never worked out that well (in gst-crystalhd).
I just bought a BCM70015 that does wonder.
So I'm starting considering it's the 70012 itself (or its firmware)
that is actually bugged.

Haven't looked at the patch yet but I'll give it a try by tonight if possible.

FYI, VLC just added CrystalHD support very recently (or at least a
patch is 2-3 weeks old on mailing list),
if you need something else to compare with (other than gst).
