Hi Steve,

I have just tested the imx-media-staging-md-wip branch on a Nitrogen6X
with a tc358743 (BD_HDMI_MIPI HDMI to MIPI CSI-2 receiver board). Some

# Link pipeline
media-ctl -l "'tc358743 1-000f':0->'imx6-mipi-csi2':0[1]"
media-ctl -l "'imx6-mipi-csi2':1->'ipu1_csi0_mux':0[1]"
media-ctl -l "'ipu1_csi0_mux':2->'ipu1_csi0':0[1]"
media-ctl -l "'ipu1_csi0':2->'ipu1_csi0 capture':0[1]"

# Provide an EDID to the HDMI source
v4l2-ctl -d /dev/v4l-subdev2 --set-edid=file=edid-1080p.hex
# At this point the HDMI source is enabled and sends a 1080p60 signal
# Configure detected DV timings
media-ctl --set-dv "'tc358743 1-000f':0"

# Set pad formats
media-ctl --set-v4l2 "'tc358743 1-000f':0[fmt:UYVY/1920x1080]"
media-ctl --set-v4l2 "'imx6-mipi-csi2':1[fmt:UYVY2X8/1920x1080]"
media-ctl --set-v4l2 "'ipu1_csi0_mux':2[fmt:UYVY2X8/1920x1080]"
media-ctl --set-v4l2 "'ipu1_csi0':2[fmt:AYUV32/1920x1080]"

v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video4 -V
# This still is configured to 640x480, which is inconsistent with
# the 'ipu1_csi0':2 pad format. The pad set_fmt above should
# have set this, too.

v4l2-ctl --list-formats -d /dev/video4
# This lists all the RGB formats, which it shouldn't. There is
# no CSC in this pipeline, so we should be limited to YUV formats
# only.

# Set capture format
v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video4 -v width=1920,height=1080,pixelformat=UYVY

v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video4 -V
# Now the capture format is correctly configured to 1920x1080.

v4l2-ctl -d 4 --list-frameintervals=width=1920,height=1080,pixelformat=UYVY
# This lists nothing. We should at least provide the 'ipu1_csi0':2 pad
# frame interval. In the future this should list fractions achievable
# via frame skipping.

v4l2-compliance -d /dev/video4
# This fails two tests:
# fail: v4l2-test-input-output.cpp(383): std == 0
# fail: v4l2-test-input-output.cpp(449): invalid attributes for input 0
# and
# fail: v4l2-test-controls.cpp(782): subscribe event for control 'User Controls' failed

# (Slowly) stream JPEG images to a display host:
gst-launch-1.0 -v v4l2src device=/dev/video4 ! jpegenc ! rtpjpegpay ! udpsink

I've done this a few times, and sometimes I only get a "ipu1_csi0: EOF
timeout" message when starting streaming.
