- the newavmode endpoint property is now private to adv7180.

See below re this value.

Hi Ian, I double-checked the ADV7180 datasheet, this value is
correct. Bit 4, when cleared, _enables_ NEWAVMODE.

Hah, ok. I'm not familiar enough with the history of this chip and didn't
know what "OLDAVMODE" was. So, to enable NEWAVMODE you clear
the NEWAVMODE bit. That makes perfect sense.

Anyway, I still don't see what NEWAVMODE gets you. As
far as I can see it just locks down the timings and removes the flexibility
the chip otherwise offers to move the BT656 SAV and EAV codes around
relative to the incoming video.

In what circumstances would you need to set the newavmode property
and change this default behaviour? We're not coupling the adv7180
back-to-back with an ADV video encoder here, which is what
NEWAVMODE is for and is presumably why AD recommend it for their
eval boards. We're trying to get a BT656 compliant stream, which is
what the default mode purports to generate.

According to the ADV7180 datasheet, rev. J, page 48 [1], when NEWAVMODE is 0,
no adjustments are possible to the output timings, which would imply this write
is ignored after your edit.
That's correct, when NEWAVMODE is enabled (by clearing reg 0x31 bit 4), no
adjustments are possible to the output timings:

From the rev J datasheet, page 91, when reg 0x31 bit 4 is set (NEAVMODE disabled):

"Manual VS/FIELD position controlled by Register 0x32, Register 0x33, and
Register 0xE5 to Register 0xEA"

Again according to the DS, NEWAVMODE is set by default and enables a
stream which is by default CCIR656 compliant. Your edit writes 0x02 to
this register which actually clears NEWAVMODE (bit 4).
correct, it clears bit 4 which _enables_ NEWAVMODE.

NEWAVMODE by default is _disabled_ (bit 4 is set).
