[linux-dvb] High Level CI support .. status of hg ?

Hi,

    Just thought I'd touch base again on the status of the High Level CI 
support, in particular the Twinhan 1030A dst stuff. There was some 
action a while ago, in the off site mercurial tree detailed below, 
involving adding a dst_algo parameter to the driver, which seemed to 
help alot of people get these cards working. Unfortunately, this tree 
hasn't been touched in 3 months, and won't compile against recent 
(>2.5.15 or so) kernels. Partcularly as the i2c stuff in the kernel has 
been significantly reworked (which makes merging all the dst stuff by 
hand a seriouos pain).

    Is there any plan to get the fixes in the tree below into the main 
branch ? I just tried compiling the latest hg tip and scan still won't 
pick up most of the channels I'm entitled too.

    I'd be really interested to know if it is expected that the 
VisionPlus/Twinhan High level CI cards are ever going to be supported or 
if I should just go an fork out for a  better supported card (I've been 
trying to get this one working for 2 years now ...).

Regards,

Graeme
