    <para>While some DV receivers or transmitters support a wide range of timings, others
support only a limited number of timings. With this ioctl applications can enumerate a list
of known supported timings. Call &VIDIOC-DV-TIMINGS-CAP; to check if it also supports other
standards or even custom timings that are not in this list.</para>

    <para>To query the available timings, applications initialize the
<structfield>index</structfield> field and zero the reserved array of &v4l2-enum-dv-timings;
and call the <constant>VIDIOC_ENUM_DV_TIMINGS</constant> ioctl with a pointer to this
structure. Drivers fill the rest of the structure or return an
&EINVAL; when the index is out of bounds. To enumerate all supported DV timings,
applications shall begin at index zero, incrementing by one until the
driver returns <errorcode>EINVAL</errorcode>. Note that drivers may enumerate a
different set of DV timings after switching the video input or
output.</para>
