+ <para>The hardware may be able to detect the current video
+standard automatically. To do so, applications call <constant>
+VIDIOC_QUERYSTD</constant> with a pointer to a &v4l2-std-id; type. The
+driver stores here a set of candidates, this can be a single flag or a
+set of supported standards if for example the hardware can only
+distinguish between 50 and 60 Hz systems. When detection is not
+possible or fails, the set must contain all standards supported by the
+current video input or output.</para>
