8.35. ioctl VIDIOC_G_MODULATOR, VIDIOC_S_MODULATOR¶
VIDIOC_G_MODULATOR - VIDIOC_S_MODULATOR - Get or set modulator attributes
To query the attributes of a modulator applications initialize the
index field and zero out the
reserved array of a struct
v4l2_modulator and call the
VIDIOC_G_MODULATOR ioctl with a pointer to this structure. Drivers
fill the rest of the structure or return an
EINVAL error code when the
index is out of bounds. To enumerate all modulators applications shall
begin at index zero, incrementing by one until the driver returns
Modulators have two writable properties, an audio modulation set and the
radio frequency. To change the modulated audio subprograms, applications
txsubchans fields and the
array and call the VIDIOC_S_MODULATOR ioctl. Drivers may choose a
different audio modulation if the request cannot be satisfied. However
this is a write-only ioctl, it does not return the actual audio
SDR specific modulator types are
V4L2_TUNER_RF. For SDR devices
txsubchans field must be
initialized to zero. The term ‘modulator’ means SDR transmitter in this
To change the radio frequency the VIDIOC_S_FREQUENCY ioctl is available.
