51	    <para>To set DV timings for the input or output, applications use the
52	<constant>VIDIOC_S_DV_TIMINGS</constant> ioctl and to get the current timings,
53	applications use the <constant>VIDIOC_G_DV_TIMINGS</constant> ioctl. The detailed timing
54	information is filled in using the structure &v4l2-dv-timings;. These ioctls take
55	a pointer to the &v4l2-dv-timings; structure as argument. If the ioctl is not supported
56	or the timing values are not correct, the driver returns &EINVAL;.</para>
57	<para>The <filename>linux/v4l2-dv-timings.h</filename> header can be used to get the
58	timings of the formats in the <xref linkend="cea861" /> and <xref linkend="vesadmt" />
59	standards. If the current input or output does not support DV timings (e.g. if
60	&VIDIOC-ENUMINPUT; does not set the <constant>V4L2_IN_CAP_DV_TIMINGS</constant> flag), then
61	&ENODATA; is returned.</para>

291		  <row>
292		    <entry>V4L2_DV_FL_REDUCED_BLANKING</entry>
293		    <entry>CVT/GTF specific: the timings use reduced blanking (CVT) or the 'Secondary
294	GTF' curve (GTF). In both cases the horizontal and/or vertical blanking
295	intervals are reduced, allowing a higher resolution over the same
296	bandwidth. This is a read-only flag, applications must not set this.

299		  <row>
300		    <entry>V4L2_DV_FL_CAN_REDUCE_FPS</entry>
301		    <entry>CEA-861 specific: set for CEA-861 formats with a framerate that is a multiple
302	of six. These formats can be optionally played at 1 / 1.001 speed to
303	be compatible with 60 Hz based standards such as NTSC and PAL-M that use a framerate of
304	29.97 frames per second. If the transmitter can't generate such frequencies, then the
305	flag will also be cleared. This is a read-only flag, applications must not set this.
306		    </entry>
307		  </row>
308		  <row>
309		    <entry>V4L2_DV_FL_REDUCED_FPS</entry>
310		    <entry>CEA-861 specific: only valid for video transmitters, the flag is cleared
311	by receivers. It is also only valid for formats with the V4L2_DV_FL_CAN_REDUCE_FPS flag
312	set, for other formats the flag will be cleared by the driver.
313	
314	If the application sets this flag, then the pixelclock used to set up the transmitter is
315	divided by 1.001 to make it compatible with NTSC framerates. If the transmitter
316	can't generate such frequencies, then the flag will also be cleared.
317		    </entry>
318		  </row>
319		  <row>
320		    <entry>V4L2_DV_FL_HALF_LINE</entry>
321		    <entry>Specific to interlaced formats: if set, then field 1 (aka the odd field)
322	is really one half-line longer and field 2 (aka the even field) is really one half-line
323	shorter, so each field has exactly the same number of half-lines. Whether half-lines can be
324	detected or used depends on the hardware.
