+ The Digital Video control class is intended to control receivers
+ and transmitters for <ulink url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vga">VGA</ulink>,
+ <ulink url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface">DVI</ulink>
+ (Digital Visual Interface), HDMI (<xref linkend="hdmi" />) and DisplayPort (<xref linkend="dp" />).
+ These controls are generally expected to be private to the receiver or transmitter
+ subdevice that implements them, so they are only exposed on the
+ <filename>/dev/v4l-subdev*</filename> device node.
+ </para>
+
+ <para>Note that these devices can have multiple input or output pads which are
+ hooked up to e.g. HDMI connectors. Even though the subdevice will receive or
+ transmit video from/to only one of those pads, the other pads can still be
+ active when it comes to EDID (Extended Display Identification Data,
+ <xref linkend="vesaedid" />) and HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content
+ Protection System, <xref linkend="hdcp" />) processing, allowing the device
+ to do the fairly slow EDID/HDCP handling in advance. This allows for quick
+ switching between connectors.</para>
+
+ <para>These pads appear in several of the controls in this section as
+ bitmasks, one bit for each pad. Bit 0 corresponds to pad 0, bit 1 to pad 1,
+ etc. The maximum value of the control is the set of valid pads.</para>

+ if EDID information is available from the source. This control shows the
+ state of the hotplug pin as seen by the transmitter.
+ Each bit corresponds to an output pad on the transmitter. If an output pad
+ does not have an associated hotplug pin, then the bit for that pad will be 0.

+ the transmitter can sense that the receiver is ready to receive video).
+ Each bit corresponds to an output pad on the transmitter. If an output pad
+ does not have an associated Rx Sense, then the bit for that pad will be 0.

+ does not support EDIDs, then the bit for that pad will be 0.
+ This read-only control is applicable to VGA, DVI-A/D, HDMI and DisplayPort connectors.
