I found your old e-mail with a similar issue (CCDC stop timeout):

https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-media/msg60096.html

It looks as if our media-ctl commands are almost the same as in
the example given by Adriano and it confirms that /dev/video2
is the right channel.

In your answer you recommended to check /proc/interrupts which
did help Adriano.

Yes, we see the "OMAP3 ISP" entry go up roughly with 15-20
interrupts per second. This means VSYNC seems to arrive at ~15 fps.

But we still have the timeouts and no image in mplayer.

Can we easily check if HSYNC is also arriving at the CCDC or has
wrong polarity?

BR and thanks,
Nikolaus
