[linux-dvb] begining work on a hauppauge wintv-hvr-1600 driver

Hello DVB list members,
  I would like to start work or contribute my help for a driver for the Hauppauge HVR-1600 ATSC/NTSC dual tuner.  Can someone please tell me if I'm using the right list to discuss development.  I wasn't sure if I should be on the DVB list or another V4L list.

  I found a cx2314x.c file in the CVS tarball i downloaded.  It sat in the v4l-dvb-520f7d68c8b4\linux\drivers\media\video directory.  Should I use this file as a starting point?  Any help would be appreciated.

Also I've posted as much information about the card as I could at the mythtv wiki.  http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_HVR-1600

Well done, Roger.

OK, I'm ready to volunteer. I'm in Adelaide. And if you still need someone to
host the file, I can do that (using my Bigpond account). Just let me know what
you want done.

Petey.

Hi Roger,

It's great to see some progress with this card.

I'm in Perth and would love to help test it.

I currently have access to one of these cards in Melbourne for further 
testing, and can provide another file mirror if necessary.

Congrats on the work Roger.

No, it wouldn't.

Right now unsupported, but status will change in future

Don't think that would help
