i dont really now! i made for myself (and posted on v4l ml) a simple 
patch for the auto-recognition of the flydvb-t duo cardbus but it's not 
complete because there are problems with the audio part of the 
composite/svideo inputs, so i don't think it's ready now..

but OTOH for this new batch of tv cards, people are all patching against 
the latest v4l snapshot:

   http://dl.bytesex.org/cvs-snapshots/

the same new entry number #56!

i envision a nightmare when all these new cards need to be renumbered.. 
anyway, time will tell.

sorry, i mean i really don't know when will have dvb support for such 
kind of digital silicon tuner. actually in saa7134-dvb there's no support..
