For that most of us are eternally grateful and recogize the fact. It's 
an attitude I find prevalent in my dealings with Linux newbies who are 
coming from an environment where you plug the card in, run a CD and it 
does whatever it does, no comebacks if it doesn't do something they 
would like - "it just does that" is accepted.
On here, you can ask for features, make corrections, test the software 
and offer feedback. Devlopers such as yourself are very attentive and do 
a sterling job, that's why I'm on the list and all of us should realise 
the results are product of a hard slog in your own time. I have issues 
not to do with TV cards, I test new kernels, see improvements and hope 
one day, I can get the stuff to work properly. Over the years I have had 
hardware that hasn't worked for years, but now it does and is in 
service. We owe you, you don't owe us.
Regards
Sid.
