- <para>This interface is intended for AM and FM (analog) radio
-receivers and transmitters.</para>

- <para>Conventionally V4L2 radio devices are accessed through
-character device special files named <filename>/dev/radio</filename>
-and <filename>/dev/radio0</filename> to

-numbers 64 to 127.</para>

- <para>Devices supporting the radio interface set the
-<constant>V4L2_CAP_RADIO</constant> and
-<constant>V4L2_CAP_TUNER</constant> or
-<constant>V4L2_CAP_MODULATOR</constant> flag in the
-<structfield>capabilities</structfield> field of &v4l2-capability;
-returned by the &VIDIOC-QUERYCAP; ioctl. Other combinations of

- <para>Radio devices can support <link
-linkend="control">controls</link>, and must support the <link
-linkend="tuner">tuner or modulator</link> ioctls.</para>
-
- <para>They do not support the video input or output, audio input
-or output, video standard, cropping and scaling, compression and
-streaming parameter, or overlay ioctls. All other ioctls and I/O

- <title>Programming</title>
-
- <para>Radio devices may have a couple audio controls (as discussed
-in <xref linkend="control" />) such as a volume control, possibly custom
-controls. Further all radio devices have one tuner or modulator (these are
-discussed in <xref linkend="tuner" />) with index number zero to select
-the radio frequency and to determine if a monaural or FM stereo
-program is received/emitted. Drivers switch automatically between AM and FM
-depending on the selected frequency. The &VIDIOC-G-TUNER; or
-&VIDIOC-G-MODULATOR; ioctl
-reports the supported frequency range.</para>
