analysis: no go. more device config info needed or it would crash the dvb-bt8xx and 
bttv driver possibly elsewhere and no frontend driver for the sharp tuner available, 
anyway.

recommend blacklisting these cards in hotplug to keep standard distros 
working (avoid bttv deadlock on boot) until enough device info is availlable to get it on.
