Hi Chuck,

You're right.  FWIW, the underlying representation is designed to
support different types on each input or output stream, but the top
level constructor, gr_io_signature, doesn't implement an interface to it.

I'm pretty sure that sizeof(atsc::syminfo) is 4, which is the same as
sizeof(float).  This is true because the total width of the integer
bit fields in atsc::syminfo is <= 32.


  assert(sizeof(float) == sizeof(atsc::syminfo));

somewhere in work, and then cast away.  We lose clarity in the i/o
signature, but I'm pretty sure it'll work.  [ It worked before ;) ]


     const float *in_sample = (const float *) input_items[0];
     const atsc::syminfo *in_tag = (const atsc::syminfo *) input_items[1];

     assert(sizeof(float) == sizeof(atsc::syminfo));
