Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if you have one) whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

I have no xorg.conf in /etc/X11. I will also attach Xorg.0.log without kms (nomodeset).

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 5 Eddie Lania 2009-10-11 12:57:05 EDT
On F11 still having this bug. Will video-in be supported using kms in the nearby future? Or is it being dropped from the list of features?
Comment 6 Matěj Cepl 2009-11-05 13:26:02 EST
Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages. For packages from updates-testing repository you can use command

yum upgrade --enablerepo='*-updates-testing'

Alternatively, you can also try to test whether this bug is reproducible with the upcoming Fedora 12 distribution by downloading LiveMedia of F12 Beta available at http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/ . By using that you get all the latest packages without need to install anything on your computer. For more information on using LiveMedia take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD .

Please, if you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.

If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

Comment 7 Eddie Lania 2009-11-26 11:43:14 EST
Upgraded to F12, still no video-in capabilities.
Comment 8 Dave Airlie 2009-11-29 15:58:21 EST
Its on the list but its not on the priority list, should really push this to upstream as a feature request so others can help decide.
Comment 9 Eddie Lania 2010-03-26 17:37:40 EDT
video-in capabilities were present in the old driver, i would like to have it back. So, can it be pushed upstream please? Isn't it possible to add code from the old driver back in?

I just upgraded from F12 to F13. In F13, there also is no xvport available for the video-in capabilities of the video board.
