Hi, list,
The company I work for considers writing LinuxTV drivers for the DVB
reciever cards it manufactures. After initial checks I have some
questions unanswered. Please point me to the correct documents if they
exist.

1) The PDF file at LinuxTV.org seems to explain the upper API, i.e. the
API from the application to the linuxtv framework. I'm unable to find
the bottom API, i.e. the functions that I have to implement as a driver
writer.
2) The cards don't do any demuxing -- they provide the transport stream
as-is. Where an actual software demuxing takes place? Do I have to
reimplement it at the driver or does a framework take care of it for me?
3) Is there some sort of a skeleton driver existing?

Hope you can help me out with this one.
