Curt-

What's the problem?  Why can't you just use the current nxt2004 firmware 
provided by the get_dvb_firmware script?  It works fine on AVerTV HD 
A180 and ATi HDTV Wonder, and you SAID it was working with the patch 
that has been merged into the v4l-dvb master repository... Why re-invent 
the wheel?

If there are still bugs, PLEASE state them.
